The Christ Hospital to Open New Outpatient Center in Montgomery
By Adrian Maties, Associate Editor
The Christ Hospital Health Network officially announced on Thursday, Feb. 28, that it is expanding in Montgomery with a new, three-story outpatient center. Construction will begin this spring, with completion expected in late 2014.
Called The Christ Hospital Outpatient Center in Montgomery, the facility will be located north of I-275 on Montgomery Road at Vintage Club Drive. It will be Christ Hospital Health Network’s first non-hospital location to provide external-beam radiation therapy and chemotherapy services for cancer patients.
“We are thrilled to bring our outpatient services and physicians to the city of Montgomery,” said Vic DiPilla, chief business development officer at The Christ Hospital Health Network, in a statement for the press. “Our physicians have provided leading care in Montgomery for many years and look forward to providing an even broader array of convenient, accessible healthcare services in this outstanding new facility.”
The 78,000-square-foot facility will include three floors of clinical and medical office space. Parking for patients and visitors will consist of both an attached parking garage and surface lots.
Bellevue, Ky.-based Brandicorp is the project’s developer. Duke Realty serves as contractor, and McGill Smith Punshun Inc. is the project’s architect. GBBN Architects is designing the interiors. The Christ Hospital Outpatient Center will be designed to be LEED-eligible for Core & Shell and Interiors.
“With these treatments often requiring multiple visits over the course of several weeks, a second location will add much more flexibility in scheduling and convenience for our patients,” said Michael Quaranta, executive director of oncology services for The Christ Hospital Health Network. “Advanced, complex cases will continue to be treated at the hospital in Mount Auburn, but many patients with cancers such as breast, lung, colorectal and prostate will be able to select a Christ Hospital treatment location closer to their homes or places of work.”
