Your Team

 

As our community continues to grow, so do we.  

Waynesboro Hospital has announced plans to build a medical office building which is slated to open in early 2015.

The medical office building will be located next to Waynesboro Hospital, 501 E. Main St., across from the Emergency Department entrance along Enterprise Avenue.

Hospital leaders are still working with architects to determine the final details but plans at this time include a three-story building, which will house physician practices and a walk-in care center.

Total cost for the building, including construction, furniture, equipment, and landscaping is estimated at $15 million.

According to hospital officials, the building will be designed with patients in mind, but it's also part of a strategy to attract new physicians to the area.

"We're competing with many other areas to hire doctors, and offering new facilities will give us an advantage," said Melissa Dubrow, Waynesboro Hospital's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

Breaking ground September, the construction project is scheduled for late February 2014 with the new medical office building and urgent care center open by summer 2015.
