Local architecture team breaks ground at Highland District Hospital
TEG is pleased to announce the upcoming ground breaking of a 39,000 square foot addition, renovation and parking lot expansion for Highland District Hospital – a health care facility located in Hillsboro, Ohio. TEG is working in collaboration with Pepper Construction and Cincinnati-based Megen Construction to successfully complete the project.
“Our mission to serve the community by providing accessible, efficient, quality healthcare in an atmosphere of safety, compassion and excellence will continue to be our daily focus, but these improvements will provide a more positive patient experience for years to come.”
– Randal Lennartz, President and CEO of Highland District Hospital
When construction is complete in 2020, Highland District Hospital will feature a larger medical/ surgical nursing area, all private inpatient rooms equipped with the newest technologies, a separate orthopedic and sports medicine outpatient clinic, onsite and expanded outpatient rehabilitation, additional patient registration access points, a new cancer care unit, an expanded and remodeled surgery unit and a more easily accessible patient entrance with improved traffic access, including a parking lot expansion. Construction will be completed in multiple phases to ensure Highland District Hospital will remain fully operational during construction.
“This addition and renovation allows us to offer a more patient care-centered atmosphere to our patients. The demand to care for more critical patients right here in our own community is growing, and this project expands our capabilities. It is a very exciting time for our organization.”
– Tim Parry, Vice President of Operations of Highland District Hospital.
