A local hospital is expanding, and it is hiring.
MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland announced Wednesday that it is building a new state-of-the-art facility in Middleburg Heights.
The new health center will be ready for use in 12-16 months and carries a price tag of $23 million.
“The idea is to provide health care for patients in the community that they live in. This is very patient-centric. Not everything needs to be done in a main hospital setting. So, what we do is take about ninety to ninety-five percent of what you need medically, and we perform it in the community where you live,” said Dr. William Lewis of MetroHealth.
The new facility is expected initially to handle 60,000 patient visits a year.
It will replace the current Strongsville center, which is mainly a primary care center.
MetroHealth, which announced several hundred layoffs last month because of budgetary issues related to uninsured patient visits, plans to add at least 60 new jobs in the Middleburg Heights facility.
The center is expected to be self-sustaining within two years
