Memorial Hospital of Union County will start construction this fall on a $7.5-million project that will include construction of a new medical office building at 120 Coleman’s Crossing Blvd.
The 35,000-square-foot, two-story building will be developed by the Pizzuti Companies. It will house the hospital’s urgent care, imaging, physical therapy and sports medicine services, the Marysville Orthopedics and Sports Medicine practice, and provide space for advanced performance training offered by Memorial’s Elevate Sports Medicine.
According to information from the hospital, its urgent care facility opened in 2006 and continues to experience significant growth, which is what prompted development of the new building.
“In fact, 2012 proved to be our busiest year on record, with nearly 16,000 visits to the urgent care,” said Chip Hubbs, MHUC president and CEO. “The thought and careful planning we are putting into the design of this new building will result in an extraordinary facility as well - one with the patient experience at the heart of every element, from registration to treatment.”
