Valley West Expansion and Medical Office Building

June 18, 2007

Valley West Community Hospital continues its passion for excellence with the addition of a medical office building to the hospital campus, as well as a $7 million, 12,000- square foot expansion to the hospital.

“The new office building and hospital expansion allow Valley West to continue to meet and exceed expectations of the communities we serve,” said Brad Copple, VWCH administrator.

Valley West is adding on more than 12,000 square feet to help accommodate increasing volumes of patients. All planned growth will occur on the north side of the building, expanding parts of the 2002 addition to the hospital. The new addition adds two new surgical suites and two new OB rooms. Two new emergency department rooms will also be added through construction within the existing hospital walls. Groundbreaking is scheduled for September, and occupancy is expected in spring or early summer of 2008.

The medical office building on the north side of the Valley West campus brings 38,000 square feet of clinic and community space to the Sandwich area. Many area physicians are eager to have easy access to the hospital and its services for both themselves and their patients. Several local physicians are expected to move their independent practices to the building. Additionally, services currently offered in the hospital, including cardiac rehab, diabetes education and the pain clinic, all will move to facilities in the new building. A large conference room with capacity to seat more than 100 people will accommodate the hospital’s community wellness and education programs, as well as other hospital events. The new building is expected to open in September.

Valley West Community Hospital, a part of KishHealth System, is a 2006 recipient of the prestigious Fire Starter Award, acknowledging Valley West’s passion for clinical, operational and service excellence.
