Martinsburg, W.Va. — Valley Health announced that its new 40,000-square-foot medical building for Spring Mills in northern Berkeley County is scheduled for completion by the end of the year. The first floor of the two-story ambulatory care center will include urgent care and occupational health services, family medicine and medical imaging including women’s imaging, the Winchester, Va.-based regional health care provider said in a news release. The second floor will include office space and exam rooms for physician specialists in cardiology and surgical oncology.
The building is the first part of a three-phase project at the intersection of U.S. 11 and Campus Drive, where site preparation began in November. It will be across Campus Drive from the new WVU Medicine building. The architect is TouchStone Design of Scottsdale, Arizona and the builder is Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. of Winchester, Virginia.
“Thirty percent of the patients that are served by Valley Health are West Virginia residents and 28 percent of the 5,600 employees who work at Valley Health are West Virginia residents, contributing millions of dollars to (the) West Virginia economy,” Mark Merrill, Valley Health’s president and CEO, told those gathered at a groundbreaking celebration last month.
Brad Close, who serves as chair of Valley Health West Region Hospitals Board of Trustees, noted that the Spring Mills project joins significant investments that the not-for-profit health care provider already has made in eastern West Virginia. Those investments include more than $34 million for the new War Memorial Hospital in Berkeley Springs and a $27 million critical access hospital in Hampshire County.
