A ground-breaking ceremony was held early Wednesday afternoon for the Summit Health's new Greencastle Medical Office Building.
Summit Health has provided care for Greencastle area residents for many years and has had a physical presence at the John L. Grove Medical Center since the late 1980s, said John Massimilla, chief operating officer of Chambersburg Hospital.
"Summit Health's mission is to provide local, comprehensive medical services to members of the community in convenient locations," Massimilla said. "We are thrilled for the opportunity to be investing here in the Greencastle community and expanding our services here."
The ground-breaking kicked off construction of the three-story, 45,000-square-foot building off Antrim Commons Drive along U.S. 11 south of Greencastle at Exit 3 of Interstate 81. The $15 million project is expected to be finished in June 2019.
It will house Summit Primary Care, walk-in care, Summit Orthopedic Group, Summit Women's Group, Summit Podiatry, Summit ENT and Hearing Services, Summit Occupational Health and Summit Behavioral Health, with services including blood draw, physical therapy, occupational health, EKG and select imaging services.
About 80 people will work from the building, but some suites will be shared so they will not all be in the building at the same time.
