Mercy Health Youngstown, formerly Humility of Mary Health Partners, will break ground in May to construct a $14.5 million, 50,000 square foot, outpatient ambulatory facility to meet the growing needs of the Trumbull County community.
The new facility will be built adjacent to Mercy Health Youngstown’s existing Howland Surgery Center and will bring together physician offices, rehabilitation services, diagnostic imaging, and lab services into one convenient location.
“We are excited about bringing the services people need where they need it,” said Kathy Cook, president of Mercy Health’s St. Joseph Warren Hospital. “Our goal is to create a centralized, comprehensive facility in a location that will benefit our patients.”
A key feature of the new facility will be access to physicians, both primary care and specialists, in one centrally located facility.
“In this setting, the primary care physicians will serve as the hub,” said James Kravec, MD, president, Mercy Health Physicians – Youngstown. “We also will have onsite specialists from areas including surgery, orthopedics, physical medicine, and ear, nose and throat (ENT) making it more efficient to schedule and treat patients.”
The new facility also will co-locate physicians and services, enhancing access to healthcare.
