Official Ground Breaking Event At PMC Scheduled For Friday Morning

WAYNE – Plan on joining Providence Medical Center this Friday for a ground breaking event on the PMC Imaging, Surgery and Clinic Remodel and Addition.

A two-phase project began a couple months ago at Providence Medical Center with a remodel and addition.

Darland Construction Company, who has done the last two projects at PMC, will lead the charge on the $13.5 million project.

The project at PMC consists of approximately a 19,885-sf addition as well as a 19,792-sf remodel of existing facility. The addition will extend into the southeast parking lot and create new space for the new Outpatient Clinic, Radiology and Main Entry.

Due to construction, several changes will occur, according to CEO Jim Frank.

“Now we’re also asking that people pay attention throughout the summer,” Frank added. “Because there may be changes to that, there may be different access points but, of course, we’ll keep everybody up to date on that.”

PMC is looking to position themselves for the future of outpatient services as 17 different specialties are offered by 22 different providers.

Providence Medical Center will also be remodeling their entire surgery department.

“That is pretty much original, from the original construction in 1975,” Frank mentioned. “So, it’s time to update that space as well as all of the mechanical, heating, ventilating, air conditioning go along with that.”

The first stage, new addition, will take 8-10 months and second stage, being the renovation of the old space about another 14 months.

Friday morning Chamber Coffee is scheduled for Friday, June 25 at 10 a.m. More information will be provided at the event about the construction project.
