WAYNESBORO — Officials at Waynesboro Hospital on Monday, March 3 commemorated the beginning of a $16 million medical office building construction project that begins this month and is projected to be completed by summer 2015.

According to Melissa Dubrow, vice president and chief operating officer at Waynesboro Hospital, the medical office building will provide essential services at a convenient location for the community.

“It is our hope that this modern building will also attract new physicians to the area,” Dubrow said.

Plans for the three-story 50,000 square-foot building include office space for multiple Summit Health specialty practices, a family practice and a walk-in care center.

“For Summit Health to make this investment in Waynesboro means a lot to all of us,” said state Sen. Richard Alloway II (R-33), who was in attendance for the event.
