Work begins on first Patient First in Lancaster CountyTim Stuhldreher
Site work has begun in Manheim Township, Lancaster County, for an outpatient medical center slated to open early next year.
Richmond, Va.-based Patient First plans to build an 8,000-square-foot standalone facility in the 1600 block of Oregon Pike, spokesman Ian Slinkman said this morning. The center will be the first for Patient First in Lancaster County and its fourth in the midstate, he said.
The center will have 16 exam rooms, digital X-ray equipment, a pharmaceutical dispensary and initial staffing of about 30, he said. It will be open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. 365 days a year, offering primary care and urgent care for routine illness and injury.
Patient First does not normally disclose construction costs, Slinkman said.
The company operates 39 sites in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, according to its website. Its three midstate sites, in Hampden Township, Lower Paxton Township and York County’s Springettsbury Township, all opened last year.
