CINCINNATI and INDIANAPOLIS — Butler County residents will have even more healthcare options, thanks to a new 10,500-square-foot emergency department to be built in city of Hamilton, which is north of Cincinnati. The architect for the project is PFB Architects and Duke Realty is the general contractor. The new ED is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2013.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place June 28 for the new ED, which will be located near an existing inpatient facility on TriHealth’s 5-acre campus. The entire campus will be known as TriHealth Bethesda Butler County hospital campus.
“We are pleased to continue our strong, long-standing partnership with Bethesda North leadership to help them further their goal of being the preeminent provider of healthcare to the residents of Butler County,” says Keith Konkoli, Duke Realty senior vice president, healthcare, for the Midwest Region.
The new ED will be part of a 109,092-square-foot, five-building acquisition that Duke Realty announced in March. The buildings include a 10-bed inpatient surgical hospital, a sleep center, an imaging center and physician offices that are all leased to Bethesda North Hospital.
“The new emergency department truly speaks to TriHealth’s ongoing commitment to meet the healthcare needs of local residents,” says Gerry Oliphant, TriHealth’s executive vice president/chief operating officer. “Through these enhanced healthcare services, the community should expect to continue experiencing the highest quality care and patient satisfaction.”
