LANCASTER, Ohio (June 23, 2013) – Fairfield Medical Center is in the beginning stages of a $37.8 million facility plan called Project BRIGHT, which will involve the renovation and expansion of the main hospital building at 401 N. Ewing St. Ground will be broken in early September, and construction will be completed before the FMC’s centennial in 2016.
Underground construction will begin in August of this year. This construction will impact the Oncology offices of Dr. Singh and Dr. Saha as well as the Chemotherapy Department. In order to decrease disruption to our oncology patients, we are temporarily relocating these services to 214 Harmon Avenue, which is conveniently located to the south of the hospital.
Parking will be affected during construction; however, we have dedicated parking spaces for cancer patients and their loved ones close to the building. These changes will go into effect August 5. We expect this relocation to last 12-14 months.
Radiation Oncology will remain in its current location. A temporary entrance will be created during the construction project to make hospital access as easy as possible.
We deeply appreciate the trust you have placed in us and are proud to be your hospital of choice. We pledge to work with you through this transition. Please feel free to contact Robin Thompson at (740) 687-8805, option 2, with any questions or concerns you may have.
