MANTI—Fred’s Sports Grill has closed, and the property has been bought by Gunnison Valley Hospital to house a new health clinic and pharmacy, according to Brenda Bartholomew, hospital administrator.
Sean Olsen, nurse practitioner, has been running the Manti Clinic at 46 N. Main for about a year. When Intermountain Healthcare decided to close their pharmacies last year, including the Manti Pharmacy, the hospital wanted to launch a pharmacy in Manti as a service to Manti residents, which they opened at the Manti Clinic.
Once the new Manti Pharmacy moved into the Manti Clinic building, it became apparent that additional space was needed, especially parking, and the hospital decided to purchase the property formerly occupied by the sports grill, which is located at 156 S. Main.
A construction schedule for the new clinic has not yet been set, nor have any details been released about what the plans are for the current facility located at 46 N. Main.
