Mercy to build $14M medical campus in Enon


Mercy Health Springfield will develop a new medical campus in Enon late next year in a $14 million project that will start with the construction of a freestanding emergency department.

The new emergency department will open in late 2019 and will be the centerpiece of a new Mercy Health medical campus, company officials said today.

“Mercy Health’s new medical campus in Enon will help meet demand for quality health care services in an area that is currently under served medically,” said Matt Caldwell, chief executive officer and senior vice president of Mercy Health – Springfield in a news release. “It will also offer our community an alternative to the very busy emergency department we run at Springfield Regional Medical Center, which we anticipate will drive strong patient satisfaction at both locations.”

The project will be built on a 12-acre site at exit 24 along I-675, according to information from the company. The 11,000 square foot emergency department will be the centerpiece, but Mercy Health could add further services at the medical campus site in the future, depending on patients’ needs.

The emergency department will provide 10 exam rooms, a lab and imaging center, including CT and MRI scanning capability as well as radiology and ultrasound services. The facility will be open 24-hours a day and there will be a helipad for patients needing immediate transfer to an appropriate facility after stabilization.

Mercy Health also plans to offer a chest pain center to evaluate cardiac care needs at the site, as well as a fast track sports medicine program for sports-related injuries. Other clinical services such as primary care, cardiology and specialty services will be available at Mercy Health’s medical office building in Enon, located at 240 Enon Ave., according to inforamtion from the company.

Mercy Health expects to hold a site dedication and showcase its plans on the grounds in October 2018.
