WCN Editorial Team 12 Jan 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

US-based non-profit health care company Mercy Health has announced plans to construct a 60-bed hospital and medical office complex in Mason, Warren County, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The hospital and medical office complex will be built on 30 acres of land, which will be located along the I-71 Innovation Corridor in Mason at Kings Mills, exit 25 on I-71.

Mercy Health will break ground on the 156,900ft2 hospital in the third quarter of this year.

The project is expected to create 220 new jobs in Mason by 2024, and will eventually increase to 275.

Construction of the hospital is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2023.

After completion of the construction, Mercy Health will begin patient care at the facility.

Mercy Health - Cincinnati president Dave Fikse said: “Our leadership team identified an opportunity for serving unmet inpatient needs in Warren County, while developing a strong partnership with the City of Mason. This investment aligns with our mission to promote accessible, community health and well-being.”

It is the first hospital to be constructed in Cincinnati since Mercy Health built West Hospital in 2014.

The facilities in the yet-to-be constructed hospital will include an emergency department, one level II cath lab, 60 beds along with four operating rooms and two procedure suites.

A medical office building will be constructed adjacent to the hospital and will offer specialist care including cardiology, pulmonology, general surgery, gynaecology, gastroenterology, and vascular services.

Mason City Council has approved an economic participation agreement as well as an incentive package that includes a $600,000 forgivable loan, for the project.

GBBN has been appointed as the architect and Dani as the construction firm for the project.

 In July 2019, the company opened Mercy Health – Deerfield Medical Center, an outpatient facility with diagnostics and physician offices.

Later this month, Mercy Health – Cincinnati will announce two new primary care practices in Mason and Maineville.
