Kadlec Regional Medical Center broke ground in July on a new 60,000-sq.-ft. building that will house specialty physicians from Kadlec Clinic and Kadlec Neuroscience Center
The new three-story building at 1100 Goethals Dr. in Richland is expected to be complete by the summer of 2013. The construction cost of the building is estimated at approximately $19 million, according to Jim Hall, Kadlec’s community relations director.
Chervenell Construction is the general contractor for the project that was designed by TGB Architects.
The new facility will house physicians that specialize in: ear, nose and throat; endocrinology; gastroenterology; general surgery; infectious disease and cardiothoracic and vascular surgery. In addition, Kadlec Clinic plans to add cardiologists, urologists and pulmonologists.
The Kadlec Neuroscience Center will also be housed in the building, allowing for better collaboration and communication between doctors and patients. The Center will offer neurosurgery, neurology, pain management and physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Dr. Matt Fewel, board chairman of the Kadlec Neuroscience Center, said the Center, which was started in 2008 now has 10 physicians and nearly 30 staff members, who are fragmented throughout various Kadlec facilities.
“We look forward to getting everyone under one roof,” Fewel said.
Dr. Frank Fleming, chairman of the Kadlec Clinic, said about 65 specialty providers will have offices in the new 1100 Goethels building.
