TriHealth will build a mobile campus worth US$30 million in underserved communities
Sanjian The non-profit health system announced that it is planning to build a large medical park near its Cincinnati headquarters as a “one-stop service point” for medical care
The health system announced on Friday that the Finneytown, Ohio facility will be a two-story building with an area of ??55,000 square feet and is expected to be completed in mid-2023. A mobile campus with 18 to 20 primary care providers is currently being recruited.
Mark Clement, President and CEO of the non-profit TriHealth, said: “Health care is increasingly shifting from the acute care environment of the hospital to the outpatient setting, and in many ways even to the family environment.”
Therefore, TriHealth has begun to invest in a centralized network, Value-based Clement said that both the care model and the evolving primary practice can help manage patients’ chronic diseases and address rising risk factors.
The center will become TriHealth’s 13th major outpatient campus in Greater Cincinnati, and will integrate three primary care facilities in nearby areas.
Patients will be able to access specialized nursing services in cardiology, general surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, obstetrics and other fields, as well as outpatient services including laboratories, X-rays, CT, and cardiac tests. Urgent care will also be provided 7 days a week. Clement said that the construction cost of the new campus will exceed $30 million.
Clement said that about 75% of the company’s revenue comes from outpatient services, and almost all patient services are provided in outpatient clinics or outpatient visits.
Clement said that after noticing the lack of primary care doctors, specialists, and patient services among Finneytown residents, TriHealth started working about five years ago, looking for suitable locations and properties for the widest access to health care services.
As the second largest healthcare employer in the Cincinnati area, TriHealth has 14,000 employees, operates more than 140 points of care, 6 hospitals, and provides services to 600,000 primary care patients, about half of which are covered by value-based payment arrangements .
