Cleveland Clinic is collaborating with the City of Middleburg Heights and Premier Development Partners to build a new medical outpatient centre in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, US.
The new Cleveland Clinic Middleburg Heights Family Health Center will be constructed on the site of the former K-Mart store which is situated at 17840 Bagley Road.
Work on the project involves complete renovation of the 93,000ft2 former retail structure space, which has been vacant since 2019, to accommodate the new health centre.
Premier Development Partners president Spencer Pisczak said: “This new Cleveland Clinic location will transform vacant space into a community asset and offer convenient healthcare access for more than 180,000 people living in Middleburg Heights and surrounding communities.
“Premier and Cleveland Clinic worked extensively to optimise a space that was vacant for over three years.”
The new Cleveland Clinic Middleburg Heights Family Health Center will expand access to Cleveland Clinic care as well as support economic activity in the city.
It will provide specialty, primary care, and imaging services along with the medical services based on the healthcare requirements of the community.
Slated to open next year, the new centre will also have a lab and a drive-thru pharmacy.
Cleveland Clinic Ohio Hospitals and Family Health Centers president Donald Malone said: “Contributing to the health of our communities is among the most important things we do.
“We are proud to collaborate with the City of Middleburg Heights and Premier Development Partners to broaden access to Cleveland Clinic healthcare services.
“By engaging with partners who share our commitment to health and wellbeing, we can create a healthier community for everyone.”
The health system noted that the new medical outpatient centre represents its first venture of this size.
