New Facility Home To Primary Care, Specialty Physicians
CORRY, PA – Officials with Corry Memorial Hospital (CMH), an affiliate of LECOM Health, today celebrated the grand opening of its newest addition, the Corry Medical Arts Building.
The state-of-the-art facility will be the new home of the Corry Rural Health Clinic as well as offices for primary care and specialty physicians offering a broad spectrum of services, including family medicine, geriatrics, internal medicine, podiatry, urology, endocrinology, orthopedic surgery, OB-GYN, general surgery and gastroenterology.
Today’s grand opening festivities included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and brief remarks by Pa. Sen. Michele Brooks, Corry Mayor David Mitchell, LECOM Health Vice President Jasen Diley and other LECOM Health representatives as well as tours of the new facility.
At nearly 10,000 square feet, the Corry Medical Arts Building features 22 exam/treatment rooms, a 264 square-foot multi-purpose conference room, and is directly attached to CMH, allowing patients to conveniently transition between the two facilities without the need to leave the CMH campus for services or be exposed to the elements.
“We’re excited about the opening of the new Rural Health Clinic as it will allow us more space to expand primary and specialty care services supporting the people of Corry and the surrounding communities,” said Diley. “We know rural communities are impacted negatively by physician shortages, and LECOM Health has made a commitment to ensure the people we serve have access to great care. Our new clinic enables us the opportunity to fulfill that commitment.”
Building Systems Inc. began construction on the Roth Marz Partnership-designed facility in November. The $3.2 million project was partially funded by a $1 million Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant, awarded in August 2018.
In addition to today’s private event, CMH will open its doors for a free public celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3. Area residents and families are invited to an open house to tour the Corry Medical Arts Building, learn about available services and meet the staff. The first 100 children ages 8 and under who tour the facility will receive free backpacks filled with school supplies, courtesy of LECOM Health.
Guests can also enjoy a free end-of-summer picnic and children’s activities. The community event will celebrate not only the grand opening of CMH’s newest facility but will also commemorate the hospital’s 125th anniversary.
