BROADVIEW HEIGHTS/BRECKSVILLE, Ohio — University Hospitals plans to break ground on a $28-million, state-of-the-art outpatient health center and freestanding emergency department in Broadview Heights later this year with a projected completion date in fall of 2016.
The proposed 52,000-square-foot ambulatory health center and freestanding emergency department will sit on more than six acres of land highly visible from I-77 and easily accessed from the Route 82 interchange.
The new health center will complement the services at UH Parma Medical Center. The design is being finalized and initial plans include a freestanding emergency department, outpatient laboratory services, as well as physical therapy, primary and specialty care physician services. Services will be provided to meet an entire family’s medical needs, including UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital pediatric services, women’s health, orthopedics, pain management, general surgery, allergy and immunology and cardiology.
“We welcome University Hospitals. This is an exciting opportunity for significant and positive investments that will keep our community vibrant and healthy,” said Broadview Heights Mayor Samuel Alai. “As one of the most forward-thinking healthcare systems in the country, University Hospitals will provide extraordinary benefits to our community for years to come.”
A major component of the new facility, a freestanding emergency department, will be operational 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The ED will be fully integrated medically and operationally with UH Parma Medical Center and provide leading-edge technology and imaging.
“Residents in the Brecksville and Broadview Heights region and beyond will have immediate access to life-saving technology and medical treatment,” adds Dr. Bieber. “We will respond to heart and stroke emergencies with remote EKG monitoring and the latest clot-busting medications. In addition, we can provide critical care transport for patients needing a higher level of care, such as interventional catheterization and hospitalization if necessary at UH Parma or UH Case Medical Center.”
