London, Ky. (January 28, 2019) – The Saint Joseph London campus is growing with a new addition coming in 2020. Work preparing for construction of a new Medical Office Building is underway.
The new two-story, 60,000 square-foot Medical Office Building will house a primary care, specialty care, diagnostic imaging, cardiology/ pulmonary testing, cardiology/pulmonary rehabilitation and clinical laboratory.
“We’re excited to be able to make all these services available on our campus,” said Terry Deis, president, Saint Joseph London. “The addition of this new Medical Office Building will make accessing affordable, quality medical care in London more convenient for the families and communities we serve.”
CHI Saint Joseph Health is creating centers with primary and specialty care under one roof throughout central and eastern Kentucky to make access to a growing network of health care providers as easy as possible.
Signs of change are appearing on the Saint Joseph London campus, as construction crews will begin preparing an area of the parking lot that will serve as the staging area for construction of the project. Parking will be impacted during the construction phase.
An event commemorating the kickoff for the project is planned in coming months.
