OhioHealth to Open New Medical Office Building in Chillicothe December 2021

New facility will provide primary care, heart and vascular, neurology, imaging and lab services

OhioHealth has announced plans today to open a new medical office building in Chillicothe and bring additional health care services to the Ross County community.

The faith-based, not-for-profit health system based in Columbus, plans to open a 15,000 square foot medical office building in the former OfficeMax on North Bridge Street in the retail heart of Chillicothe. The new OhioHealth location will provide multiple primary care physicians and providers to meet the needs of Ross County families. It will also provide full-time heart and vascular and neurology physician services. These physician services will be augmented by onsite imaging and lab capabilities. As with all OhioHealth services, you will be able to connect in person or, where appropriate, through telehealth services. The new medical office is scheduled to open December 2021 and will bring 25 new jobs to Ross County.

"We are committed to improving access to care for the residents of Ross County and to giving people a choice when it comes to their health," said Hugh Thornhill, senior vice president, OhioHealth Physician Group.

"OhioHealth is already caring for a growing number of patients from Chillicothe and Ross County and this new facility will make it easier for our patients to access care by providing services close to where they live and work. It supports our ongoing commitment to keep care local,” said Thornhill.

OhioHealth's decision to add new services in Chillicothe is based on the need and demand for services in the community. Access to healthcare was identified as the number one priority for Ross County residents in the county's 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment.

“Expanding care by bringing additional services and providers to Ross County is a great thing for local healthcare,” stated Tim Colburn, president of OhioHealth Berger Hospital in Circleville.

"This facility will allow the Chillicothe community to see first-hand OhioHealth’s commitment to keeping care local while achieving its mission to improve the health of those we serve,” Colburn concluded.
