GREENVILLE – A compliment to the services already being offered by Wayne HealthCare and Family Health is how Reid is billing its new facility on the corner of Meeker and Katzenbarger Roads in Greenville. A groundbreaking on the $10 million Reid Medical Office Building was held March 30 at the site.
“We are working with our partners at Family Health and Wayne HealthCare to compliment the great care they provide,” said Craig Kinyon, president/CEO of Reid. He continued, “This is a new milestone in service to this community.”
Reid and its physicians have long had a role in Darke County’s healthcare. Many of its specialty services, including cardiology and orthopedics, are already offered to area residents. “This new location will provide expanded space and bring our physicians under one roof in a convenient location for our patients in the Greenville and the Darke County area. This is a natural progression for us and a physical sign of our commitment to Darke County,” Kinyon said.
Greenville Mayor Mike Bowers was also excited by the commitment of Reid Hospital. “We have had good momentum in Greenville of late and this is just an addition to that. I’m proud to be a part of all of this.” Sharon Deschambeau, president of the Darke County Chamber of Commerce, added, “We welcome our friends from Reid to our community. Our area is a great place to live, work and do business. We appreciate Reid’s willingness to invest in our great community with this project.”
The 34,000 square foot facility will house Bethel Cardiology/Dr. Chong and other specialists from Reid’s Heart & Vascular Center, Reid Orthopedic Center specialists, Reid ENT, Reid psych services, Neurology and Rheumatology.
Dr. Chong has been in the Greenville community for 18 years and is well respected in his chosen field. He is excited to introduce the area to his co-workers. “My coworkers at Reid are all about providing expert care with a personal and compassionate touch that is so often lost in larger cities,” he said. He believes Richmond, IN is the perfect choice for patients that don’t want the hassles of larger cities.
Dr. David Jetmore, Reid ENT, is also excited about the facility. “I have always enjoyed working at Wayne HealthCare and treating patients in Darke County.”
Construction is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2015.
