OhioHealth holds beam signing at new OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital
Earlier this year, OhioHealth broke ground on the new OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital, which will be a first-of-its-kind hospital in the Grove City community. As construction continues, Daimler will soon put in place the last beam for the hospital. Before its placement, OhioHealth held a beam signing ceremony to commemorate this special occasion. The signing of the beam was a symbolic representation of the partnership between OhioHealth and the Grove City community.
“The planning for this project was a collaborative effort that brought together leaders and teams all across OhioHealth to embark on this journey of increasing access and providing more affordable, convenient and high-quality healthcare for those who live and work in Grove City,” said Kevin Lutz, DPM, chief operating officer of OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital, during the beam signing ceremony.
“For more than three decades, OhioHealth has been caring for the residents of Grove City in areas such as the Grove City Health Center, primary care and urgent care, and we’ve increased the number of specialists available, as well,” said Dr. Lutz. “We have spent time making sure we are bringing something to the community that they truly need, which is why we’re building a new type of hospital. This hospital will bring a new kind of hospital experience to Grove City residents – focused on hospitality and exceptional service. This project allowed us to collaborate in ways we’ve not yet seen at OhioHealth, and I’m proud of all of the hard work that we’ve accomplished and will accomplish on this journey.”
Grove City Mayor Ike Stage also attended the beam signing ceremony and spoke during the ceremony.
“Seventeen years ago, we had but a few specialty medical offerings in our city,” Mayor Stage told the crowd. “OhioHealth stepped up and gave us a much wider choice for our citizens (with the OhioHealth Grove City Health Center). OhioHealth is stepping up again and expanding the offerings and making it more convenient for our citizens and our physicians. We are thankful. We consider the expansion of Ohio Health as a statement of the faith you have in our community and as a complement to our city.”
The ambulatory surgery center will open in the fall of 2017, with the hospital and ED opening in late 2018.
When completed, the hospital will include services such as:
- Surgical hospital
- Ambulatory surgery center
- Emergency department
- Medical office building
