Lutheran Medical Group Completes Family Medicine Facility in Roanoke
WHAT: Leaders from Lutheran Health Network, Lutheran Medical Group, the Town of Roanoke and Huntington County will gather to cut the ribbon on a new $1.2 million, 7,234 square-foot family medicine physician office.
WHEN: 2 p.m., Monday, Jan. 14, 2013
WHERE: Lutheran Medical Group, 280 Commercial St. in downtown Roanoke
WHY: Ground was broken in June 2012 on a modern facility that is now complete. The project resulted, in part, from a $100,000 CEDIT grant from Huntington County Commissioners. The new office nearly doubled in size from its previous space and features six exam rooms, an updated area for lab work, a procedure room and more convenient parking.
Jeffrey Witt, MD, is LMG’s full-time family medicine physician in Roanoke and he will begin seeing patients at the new location immediately. The practice also has four other employees. As the town and its surrounding area continue to grow, the larger facility will allow for the addition of a second practitioner and more staff as the need arises.
The new location on Commercial Street, which is visible from U.S. 24, will be more readily accessible from the highway. The developer of the facility is Sperry Van Ness / Parke Group and Lutheran Medical Group is the tenant. The general contractor was Bob Buescher Homes.
Lutheran Medical Group is the largest member of Lutheran Health Physicians, an alliance of Lutheran Health Network owned physician practices that includes St. Joseph Medical Group, Kosciusko Medical Group, Bluffton Physician Services and Dukes Medical Group.
