Video: Final Steel Beam Installed on New Outpatient Facility
The center of MetroHealth's campus transformation always has been The Glick Center, which opens this fall. But work on another integral part of the transformation – the construction of a new 315,000-square-foot building – is well underway. On July 12, we installed the final steel beam on our new ambulatory medical office building that will open in January 2024.
It will replace the current Outpatient Plaza and will be the new space for outpatient care – including the Cancer Center and Breast Center – and administrative offices. It will also include:
- A third-floor pedestrian bridge for private patient transport and a first-floor enclosed connection for staff and public access will link the building to The Glick Center.
- Enhanced pharmacy, lab, and radiology spaces and a 24-hour drive-through pharmacy.
- An 875-car parking garage will accommodate patients and visitors.
Demolition of the Outpatient Plaza will take place in 2024. In its place will go a 12-acre park, which will become the largest outdoor public green space in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood.
