University Hospitals Plans Broadview Heights Health Center and Freestanding Emergency Department

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Groundbreaking scheduled for later this year

University Hospitals plans to break ground on a $28 million state-of-the-art outpatient health center and freestanding emergency department in Broadview Heights later this year with a projected completion date in fall of 2016.

The proposed 52,000-square-foot ambulatory health center and freestanding emergency department will sit on more than six acres of land highly visible from I-77 and easily accessed from the Route 82 interchange.

“The new health center will allow us to meet the increased demand for outpatient services and provide primary and specialty care in the communities surrounding University Hospitals Parma Medical Center,” said Eric Bieber, MD, President of UH Community Hospitals-West. “The planned new construction exemplifies our commitment to improving access to the highest quality care in an efficient patient-centered environment.”

The new health center will complement the services at UH Parma Medical Center. The design is being finalized and initial plans include a freestanding emergency department, outpatient laboratory services, and physical therapy, primary and specialty care physician services. Services will be provided to meet an entire family’s medical needs, including UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital pediatric services, women’s health, orthopaedics, pain management, general surgery, allergy and immunology, and cardiology.

“We welcome University Hospitals. This is an exciting opportunity for significant and positive investments that will keep our community vibrant and healthy,” said Broadview Heights Mayor Samuel Alai. “As one of the most forward-thinking health care systems in the country, University Hospitals will provide extraordinary benefits to our community for years to come.”

A major component of the new facility, a freestanding emergency department will be operational 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The ED will be fully integrated medically and operationally with UH Parma Medical Center and provide leading-edge technology and imaging.

“Residents in the Brecksville and Broadview Heights region and beyond will have immediate access to life-saving technology and medical treatment,” adds Dr. Bieber. “We will respond to heart and stroke emergencies with remote EKG monitoring and the latest clot-busting medications. In addition, we can provide critical care transport for patients needing a higher level of care, such as interventional catheterization and hospitalization if necessary at UH Parma or UH Case Medical Center.”

Parma Community General Hospital became part the UH health system in January of this year after a rigorous process to evaluate the benefits to patients and the six founding communities.

“Meeting our community’s health care needs has been an unwavering commitment of Parma Hospital,” said Board Chairman, David Nedrich. “We are pleased that UH continues to build upon that commitment and to strengthen and improve the health of our communities for years to come.”

The parcel of land is owned by the Dalad Group, an independent commercial real estate developer based in Independence, Ohio.

“We are honored to have an opportunity to work with University Hospitals on this project that will benefit so many residents throughout western Cuyahoga County,” said Neil Viny, Principal of the Dalad Group “We look forward to assisting them in the land development and join the excitement in overseeing new construction in Broadview Heights.”
