GREENVILLE – Reid’s $11 million Medical Office Building, completed a few weeks ago, will open Wednesday, June 24 with various specialties offered to area residents in one convenient location. Opening day will culminate with a Darke County Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting at approximately 4:30 p.m.
The Medical Office Building at 1101 Jackson Street next to Family Health provides a combined location for health care specialties offered by Reid to the community, many that have been provided in various locations in Greenville for years, Reid officials said.
“This complex provides a new home for our specialists to provide Darke County area residents a greatly improved experience when they need care,” said Craig Kinyon, Reid President/CEO. “And we are continuing our commitment to work with other providers in the region, such as Wayne HealthCare and Family Health, to provide excellent care in a facility that can help residents avoid having to drive to other communities when they find themselves in need of care not available from other local providers.”
The caregivers moving into the complex include:
· Bethel Cardiology, the longtime Greenville cardiology practice of Henry Chong, M.D., who is part of the Reid Heart & Vascular Center.
· Reid Orthopedics.
· Reid ENT
· Reid Neurology Associates
· Richmond Rheumatology Center
· Reid Psychiatric Associates
· Urological Care
“Our specialty care providers will complement the great work being done in the community by Wayne HealthCare and Family Health,” Kinyon said. He said it is also gratifying and significant that more than 90 percent of the project was done by regional workers, providing jobs and economic growth to Darke County as part of Reid’s commitment to use local and regional services whenever possible.
Dr. Chong said improvements the facility brings to his and other specialty patients is great for the community.
“My partners and I are excited to offer cardiovascular services in this new centralized facility for specialty care,” Dr. Chong said.
The groundbreaking for the facility, on 10.1 acres, was celebrated in March 2014. The complex was completed in April of this year, though the move-in was delayed awaiting work to bring fiber optics to the property. The Greenville Medical Office Building includes separate treatment rooms and waiting areas for the different specialties, and is about 34,000 square feet.
“This new building will house in most cases specialty practices for doctors who have already been caring for Greenville area residents in other locations for many years, including Bethel Cardiology and Reid Orthopedics,” said Jon Ford, Reid’s Governing Board chair. “We want to provide better facilities for our patients in the area and continue to offer specialty care that complements what is already offered by other providers.”
Other specialties are also being considered to be offered in the new complex, such as vascular and endocrinology.
Sharon Deschambeau, president of the Darke County Chamber of Commerce, said her county continues to be a leader in the regional economy thanks to continuing investments into the community such as the Reid project.
“Darke County is a great place to do business, and we welcome this wonderful addition to our community. The chamber is eager to help celebrate this milestone,” she said.
Tours will be offered at around 5 p.m. after the ribbon cutting; and a formal open house will be announced at a later date.
