TriHealth starting construction on new emergency facility

July 9, 2012 by  

Construction has now started on the new emergency department at TriHealth, located in Hamilton, just north of Cincinnati. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday, June 28 to commemorate the event. The emergency facility is expected to open sometime in the early months of 2013.

TriHealth purchased the medical center, which is situated on Hamilton Mason Road, earlier this year. The building was formerly the Butler County Medical Center and was renamed Bethesda Butler County TriHealth Hospital. This will become the seventh emergency facility serving the Butler County area. The emergency center, which is a multi-million dollar project, will be attached to the surgery building and is expected to create 40 to 50 new part-time and full-time positions.

As local businesses expand, printing companies in and around the Cincinnati area might expect to receive orders for banner printing to commemorate groundbreaking ceremonies and Grand Openings. In addition, brochure printers are often necessary to make changes in the documents companies use to provide customers with information. Poster printing and flyer printing may also be used to announce Grand Openings, groundbreaking ceremonies and other events.

The emergency department, which encompasses an area of 10,500 square feet, will contain 17 beds and have a helipad so that high-level patients may be transported to trauma centers in the Cincinnati area. TriHealth chief executive and president, John Prout, stated that the new emergency medical center would increase community members’ access to health care close to home. Jerry Oliphant, who serves as the chief operating officer for TriHealth, estimated that the new emergency center could experience as many as 11,000 visits in its first year alone.
