The Day That Changed Everything

Bill Risbara & Peter Michaud - The Downs vaccine clinic

August 2, 2021

In early 2021 at the start of the vaccine rollout, the property development team at The Downs in Scarborough stepped up to transform a former harness-racing grandstand into a high-volume vaccination clinic for MaineHealth. They accomplished that in under three weeks amid ongoing construction at The Downs, a mixed-use development spread out over 525 acres. Hear business partners and childhood friends Bill Risbara and Peter Michaud talk with Mainebiz writer Renee Cordes about what it took to build a clinic quickly to get Mainers vaccinated.
