As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to hamper the financial operations of some U.S. hospitals, other healthcare organizations are finding opportunities to expand even as the coronavirus wreaks havoc.
For example, in Ohio, Mercy Health–Cincinnati will build a new $156 million, 60-bed hospital and medical office complex in western Mason, according to the Dayton Daily News. Mercy Health expects to break ground on the 156,900-square-foot facility in the fall. It could bring as many as 220 new jobs to Mason in 2024. Jobs could climb to as many as 275.
The hospital will be the first new hospital in the Cincinnati region since Mercy Health built its West Hospital in 2014. Officials said this new hospital will focus on emergency care, as well as general and orthopedic surgery.
Cincinnati architecture firm GBBN will design the complex, and Danis will lead the construction. The hospital complex will include an emergency department; one level II cath lab, four operating rooms and two procedure suites. A medical office building will be adjacent to the hospital with specialist care, such as cardiology, pulmonology, general surgery, gynecology, gastroenterology and vascular services.
