Meadville, PA – Meadville Medical Center (MMC) held a groundbreaking
ceremony on May 21 to start construction of the new Conneaut Valley Health Center.
The former health center was destroyed in a February 2018 fire. Since then,
MMC officials have worked with architects, engineers, and other consultants
for planning, design and other services to rebuild the new center.
Located on the same site as the former center, 906 Washington Street, Conneautville,
PA, the new Conneaut Valley Health Center will provide both medical and
dental services. Since the fire, health center staff members have provided
part time medical and dental services in a temporary office placed located
at the site.
Total estimated cost of the new project is $3.3 million. It will contain
6800 square feet for medical and dental treatment and another 2500 square
feet of what hospital and community leaders hope will be professional
services such as banking or pharmacy. Prospective tenants are still being
recruited for the space. Crawford Area Transportation Authority plans
to offer area residents who need transportation pickup and delivery to
the health center.
The project general contractor is Associated Contractors, Inc. and Strollo
Architects is the architect for the project. Hospital officials hope to
open the center January 2020 and plan to hold an open house event at that time.
