SEASIDE, Ore. – North Tillamook County residents will have greater access to specialty care with additional medical services offered by Providence Seaside Hospital at The Rinehart Clinic.

Beginning in September, Providence urologist Richard Zobell, M.D., Ph.D, will serve patients at three locations: Providence Medical Group-Seaside, Providence Heart Clinic North Coast, (sharing clinic space with cardiologist Robert Morse, D.O.) and at The Rinehart Clinic, located in Wheeler.

“This is a time of stimulating growth for us to offer more specialty services,” said Ellen Boggs, chief executive of The Rinehart Clinic. “Cardiologist Robert Morse, D.O., also from Providence Seaside Hospital, has been seeing our patients for more than four months now and we are keeping him very busy. We know Dr. Zobell will also provide a great service for our patients.”

Dr. Zobell earned his medical degree at the University of Utah Medical School, and completed his internship and residency in general surgery and urology there.  He has more than 20 years experience in urology. Prior to earning his medical degree, Zobell received a doctorate in reproductive anatomy at St. Louis University.

“It’s good to be back on the Oregon coast and I look forward to meeting new people at our Wheeler location,” says Zobell. “I plan to bring new treatments dealing with male and female incontinence, female bio-identical (replacement) hormones and a full array of urology services to both men and women.”

“This is a growing partnership with The Rinehart Clinic,” said Krista Farnham, Providence Seaside Hospital chief executive. “Cardiology was the first specialty offered in Wheeler and has proven to be very successful. In this continued collaboration, urology services will fulfill a need for the residents in Wheeler and the surrounding areas. We are excited to continue to provide great care to these communities.”
