Strawberry Care: PinnacleHealth to open doc’s office in Strawberry Square.

PinnacleHealth Strawberry Square Family Care will occupy these storefronts next to Rite Aid.

At Strawberry Square, you can grab a bite to eat, buy a greeting card, deposit a check, get a latte, even rent an apartment.

And, come this fall, you’ll be able to get that bruise checked out or find out what’s wrong with your aching knee.

Around mid-November, following a build-out, PinnacleHealth plans to open a 3,000-square-foot primary care medical office, appropriately right next to the new Rite Aid store.

“I don’t remember the last time a family doctor’s office opened in downtown Harrisburg,” said Brad Jones, president and CEO of Harristown, which owns Strawberry Square. “This is one more thing that will make your life easier if you live or work here.”

PinnacleHealth Strawberry Square Family Care will feature six exam rooms, a community/conference room, a patient check-in and waiting area, a laboratory area, and several offices. Six to eight employees are expected to staff the office at any one time, Jones said.

“PinnacleHealth is pleased to bring this full-service primary care practice to the community,” said Robert Nielsen, president of PinnacleHealth Medical Group. “We have a long-standing commitment to the health and well-being of the city, and providing patient-centered, integrated care reflects our focus on offering easy access to the right care when and where patients need it.”

The Pinnacle facility will take the space long occupied by Modern Jewelers, which is relocating just across the atrium, next to the PSECU branch, said Jones.

The new medical office continues the recent transformation and modernization of Strawberry Square.

This fall, an urban-style market, Provisions, will open on the N. 3rd Street side of Strawberry Square, and, at 3rd and Market streets, Freshido, a 2,200-square-foot fast-casual Asian restaurant, will debut in space once occupied by Plum Sports. Last year, numerous new businesses opened in Strawberry Square, including Fresa Bistro and the Flats at Strawberry Square, the first apartments in the building.
