Slideshow: UPMC Pinnacle, OSS Health eye late-summer openings for York County projects

//May 2, 2019

After more than a decade in the works and about three years of construction under different owners, the new UPMC Pinnacle Memorial hospital is slated to open in August off Loucks Road and Roosevelt Avenue in West Manchester Township, York County.

Not far behind the hospital will be the new OSS West York facility across the street in neighboring Manchester Township.  The border between Manchester and West Manchester townships runs down that section of Roosevelt, which is just north of Route 30.

OSS Health officials are planning to open the three-story, 45,000-square-foot facility by September in a bid to expand orthopedic services to West York and serve the hospital.

The OSS facility also has some medical company.

A new 17,000-square-foot medical building next to OSS houses national kidney-care provider DaVita. 

WellSpan Health, one of UPMC Pinnacle’s competitors, confirmed this week that it plans to join DaVita this spring and take about 10,000 square feet of office space in that building. DaVita occupies the other 7,000 square feet.

“There is a ton of activity right now in that West York area,” said Mayur Patel, one of the principals of Susquehanna Township-based Laughner Patel Developers.

His firm bought the nine-acre tract where the DaVita and OSS buildings now sit. Patel’s company built the DaVita facility and sold the remaining land to OSS last year.

Prior to the development, that land was owned by CityView Community Church. The Memorial site was previously the Hawk Lake Golf Course, but Memorial Health Systems purchased the site in 2008 for the hospital.

PinnacleHealth acquired Memorial in 2017 and then joined forces with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).

UPMC Pinnacle stuck with the existing plan to build a new Memorial hospital in West Manchester Township. The 220,000-square-foot hospital, which will be joined by a 75,000-square-foot outpatient center, will replace a smaller Memorial building in Spring Garden Township.

UPMC Pinnacle is spending more than $300 million on the new Memorial campus, which has five other pad sites that could be built up to complement the hospital.

The cost of the OSS facility was not immediately available. Patel has not disclosed the construction costs for the DaVita and WellSpan building.
