CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The two multi-disciplinary medical office buildings located at the Summit Health Center off Norland Avenue are not going anywhere, but the addresses of the buildings will change this spring.
The buildings, currently 755 and 757 Norland Avenue, will change to 22 St. Paul Drive and 12 St. Paul Drive, respectively, effective May 9.
The address changes come as a planned part of the N. Chambersburg Improvements Project, a joint public-private venture between Chambersburg Health Services, an affiliate of Summit Health, the Borough of Chambersburg, and Greene Township that aims at enhancing the efficiency and integration of the local road network in the growing commercial area of Norland Avenue.
The three-part project includes the extension of Parkwood Drive north into Greene Township; tying into the Grand Point and Kohler Roads intersection; reconstruction and extension of St. Paul Drive to intersect with Parkwood Drive; and a series of improvements to the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Norland Avenue.
Upon completion of the reconstruction and extension of St. Paul Drive, the access road to the medical buildings will be accepted as a public street.
“We believe this project will benefit our patients as well as other community members as they navigate through this increasingly busier area of Chambersburg,” explained Chief Operating Officer of Chambersburg Hospital John Massimilla. “Our hopes in partnering in this project were to allow drivers easier access to the places they need to go, including medical appointments at our facilities. While the address changes might be the source of a little confusion initially, we want our patients to know our addresses are changing but our location is not.”
Fayetteville Contractors will be completing the project, which is expected to be under construction through December of 2017.
