CLEVELAND - MentroHealth voted on Wednesday to build a new community health center in Middleburg Heights.
The $23 million project will be located at the intersection of Interstate 71 and Pearl Road since the board of trustees approved the purchase of the land.
The MetroExpressCare will replace the heath center in Strongsville, according a news release from the MetroHealth System. It will offer services ranging from neurology to gynecology.
"More health care is being delivered in outpatient centers today and MetroHealth is developing its high-quality network to be convenient and affordable to all of Cuyahoga County," said Mark Moran, CEO and President of MetroHealth, in a news release. "This is the first step in the expansion of our ambulatory network, which aims to provide greater access to MetroHealth's comprehensive set of services."
The new 57,600-square-foot facility is expected to create 60 new jobs. Construction will start next year and should be completed in 12 to 16 months.
