A new integrated ambulatory patient care center will bring 10 health care providers to one location.
It will be at the $2.25 million, 40,000-square-foot Muhlenberg Township property that Reading Health System in June bought from Diamond Credit Union.
Construction will begin in fall 2016 on the outpatient center at 5320 Allentown Pike. The facility will include laboratory and radiology services, as well as other provider specialists.
Fifty-five employees will work in the building, and most of them will be employees relocating from other offices.
The project has a target completion of summer 2017.
“This patient-friendly space will allow Reading Health System to continue to provide high-value, cost-effective, quality care while being easily accessible to the community we serve,” said Daniel Ahern, senior vice president, strategy and business development.
Reading Health System is an integrated, nonprofit health care system serving communities in Berks and surrounding counties with one full-service hospital, one rehabilitation hospital and more than 1,000 physicians and providers across 46 locations. In 2014, Reading Hospital was the largest employer in Berks County with 7,510 employees.
