Cabell Huntington Hospital plans new medical office building to enhance patient access
Construction of a new medical office building (MOB) on the campus of Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) is scheduled to begin in August. When complete, the new facility will house multiple services including physical therapy, neurology services, physician offices, endoscopy, lab and imaging services.
“From its inception this facility’s intent and design have been to enhance patient access to the most frequently used outpatient services at Cabell Huntington Hospital,” said Tim Martin, chief operating officer of CHH. “It will feature a convenient drop-off area that opens into a welcoming lobby with floor to ceiling windows.”
The MOB will be constructed on the main campus of CHH, adjacent to the parking garage. The new structure will be five floors totaling approximately 75,000 square feet of space with two access walkways – one from the parking garage and one to Marshall Health and the main hospital.
“Patients and visitors who park in the campus parking garage never need to go outside for their appointments,” Martin explained. “The walkway connectors offer protection from the outside elements in a climate-controlled atmosphere.”
MIRC Construction Services, LLC., a local construction company based in Hurricane, WV, will lead the $51 million project with an anticipated completion date of August 2024.
“We are pleased to support our local economy through hiring local contractors and subcontractors such as MIRC and Ed Tucker Architects,” said Martin. “This keeps local dollars local.”
