Investments to enhance local services demonstrate UPMC’s commitment to improve health care delivery in Lawrence and Mercer counties
NEW CASTLE, Pa., May 24, 2017 – UPMC Centers for Rehab Services (CRS) outpatient therapy locations in Lawrence County and UPMC CancerCenter Medical Oncology locations in Mercer and Lawrence counties will relocate within the area to newly renovated facilities.
“These investments to enhance and redesign local services are examples of UPMC’s commitment to improve health care delivery in Lawrence and Mercer counties,” said Don Owrey, president, UPMC Horizon.
This September, CRS Neshannock, 3410 Wilmington Road, New Castle; CRS New Wilmington, 3438 Route 208, New Wilmington; and CRS New Castle North, 3120 Wilmington Road, New Castle, will combine to serve patients from a single location at the Nesbitt Place building in Neshannock Township. The new CRS Neshannock will be located approximately half a mile from the current Neshannock and New Castle North facilities and five miles from CRS New Wilmington.
Also this fall, a new location, CRS Westgate, W. State Street, New Castle, will open at Westgate Plaza in Union Township to offer close outpatient therapy accessibility for southern and western areas of the county.
“Our CRS locations in Lawrence County will provide comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation services in modern, newly renovated facilities,” said Paul Rockar, chief executive officer, UPMC Centers for Rehab Services. “With more than 70 locations through western Pennsylvania, it’s our goal to provide high-quality therapies within our communities for close-to-home, accessible services.”
The relocation of CRS Neshannock makes way for UPMC CancerCenter Medical Oncology, New Castle, to move into this facility, less than two miles from its current Medical Arts Building location with expanded square footage and continued convenient patient access.
“The new location for UPMC CancerCenter Medical Oncology, New Castle will be renovated to best serve medical oncology patients,” said Maureen Hatch, senior director, Medical Oncology, UPMC CancerCenter. “The new space will feature additional exam rooms and onsite chemotherapy preparation to enhance patient care and efficiencies.” It is anticipated that the new location will be ready for occupancy in the spring or summer of 2018.
Next spring or summer, UPMC CancerCenter Medical Oncology, Greenville will move into a newly renovated space conveniently located inside the UPMC Horizon–Greenville hospital. “Providing medical oncology services from within the UPMC Horizon–Greenville campus aligns with our plan for this hospital to specialize in outpatient clinics and surgical specialties, physician consultations, inpatient care and emergency services,” said Owrey.
“It’s exciting to watch UPMC’s regional-care strategy unfold. Our highly skilled physicians and staff are proud to deliver world-class care inside modern facilities right here in our communities,” added Owrey.
