Cape Fear Valley Opens Psychiatry Residency Clinic


FAYETTEVILLE – July 13, 2020 - Cape Fear Valley Health has opened a new Psychiatry Residency Clinic to better meet the growing mental health needs of the community.     

Located at 711 Executive Place, the 5th floor clinic was publicly unveiled on July 8 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by health system and Cumberland County officials. The new space will headquarter Cape Fear Valley’s psychiatry residents as they train in their new chosen field.

Support for clinic operations was made possible with a $1 million Duke Endowment Grant and help from Cumberland County’s Board of Commissioners who donated the Executive Place floor space. The state-of-the-art clinic includes an observation room, 15 offices, a conference room and waiting areas.

The clinic will treat patients age 18 and older. Scott Klenzak, M.D., Psychiatry Residency Program Director, says a lot of hard work and planning by Cape Fear Valley and its Board of Trustees led to the clinic’s creation.

“This new office represents a new phase in the development Cape Fear Valley’s Psychiatry Residency Program,” Dr. Klenzak said. “We’re pretty excited to begin this new chapter in the program’s history.”

Launched in 2018, Cape Fear Valley’s Psychiatry Residency Program currently has 12 residents with plans to grow in coming years. It is academically sponsored by Campbell University’s Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine.

Area residents seeking treatment can call (910) 615-5555 for appointment information.
