Statement From MCMC About Fire at

Nichols Landing Building in Hood River

(THE DALLES, Ore. – May 15, 2020) — A fire broke out overnight at MCMC’s Nichols Landing Building in Hood River. The fire started in an adjacent business within the building and spread to the MCMC offices. The fire was extinguished by Hood River Fire & EMS.

 “Most importantly, nobody was hurt and all patient files are secure,” said Christina McManigal, chief ambulatory operations officer at MCMC. “We are currently assessing the damage, but we do know that the Nichols Landing building will remain closed for restoration. It is too soon to know if the closure will last a few weeks or several months.”

All MCMC clinics and the hospital in The Dalles are open. MCMC’s Hood River-based providers have been seeing patients in The Dalles throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so while the Nichols Landing building is restored.
