Cambridge City Family Health Partners Constructing New Building
Construction should be completed early 2020 on the new office for the growing practice at Cambridge City Family Health Partners. The new office will be located on the lot adjacent to their office at 415 East Main.
“Thanks to the community for their tremendous support, we’ve outgrown our current space. Constructing this new building will allow us to grow in concert with the needs of the community and expand our ability to meet future healthcare needs,” explains Brian Ring, Chief Operating Officer at Henry Community Health. The practice is part of Henry Community Health located in New Castle.
Ring explains the 5,000 square foot office building will have 9 exam rooms and a multipurpose room. Separate rooms will house lab and x-ray. “With this increased space we can expand our access for primary care and perhaps in the future add specialty care,” Ring continues.
During construction the current office will remain open. When the new building opens in early 2020 the current office will be torn down to expand the parking lot.
“As a lifetime resident of Fayette County, I have always felt blessed to be able to provide healthcare services to my friends and neighbors here in the Cambridge City office. With the recent changes in health services in the surrounding counties, it is reassuring that Henry Community Health has committed to investing in the area,” Billie Geise, MSN, FNP-BC comments.
