OhioHealth beam signingOhioHealth recently held a beam signing for its new Grove City Methodist Hospital to commemorate this significant project milestone. According to OhioHealth, the signing of the last beam to be put in place serves as “a symbolic representation of the partnership between OhioHealth and the Grove City community.” Our own Purvashri Hatkar and Robert Meyer were on hand to add their signatures to the beam, in addition to those of OhioHealth employees and local dignitaries.

The first phase of the campus project, which includes an ambulatory surgery center and medical office building, is scheduled for completion this Fall. Phase two – scheduled for completion in late 2018 – will consist of the surgical hospital and freestanding emergency department. In addition to the 18-room emergency department, the second phase of the project includes 20 inpatient beds, 6 observation beds, 3 operating rooms and a procedure room, a pharmacy, and other ancillary services to support the hospital. A first-of-its-kind hospital for the community, the new facility will provide access to care in a convenient setting while addressing the increased demands for local healthcare services in Grove City.
