Schneck Medical Center Announces Expansion
October 03, 2017
Schneck Medical Center today announced a major expansion project focused on providing enhanced access to medical and specialist care—fulfilling its mission to improve the health of the communities it serves.
 
The multi-year, multi-phase expansion will be built on the northwest side of the main campus along Tipton Street and will include a five-story medical office building and a parking garage. Completion of the project is expected in 2019. Additional surgical areas will also be developed within the main hospital to better serve patients.
 
“Since 1911, Schneck has been a vital part of the communities we serve. As our communities have grown, so has Schneck by adding services and specialties to meet the medical needs of the area,” said Warren Forgey, President/CEO of Schneck Medical Center. “Our steadfast commitment to providing the highest quality care makes Schneck better able to expand the services offered in the communities we serve.”
 
The additions are being made with the community in mind. In 2015, Schneck conducted a community health needs assessment, which included input from patients, community members, community leaders, and Schneck volunteers, staff, physicians, and other medical professionals. This assessment indicated access to healthcare is a barrier throughout the region with almost 40 percent of the service area experiencing difficulties or delays in receiving needed healthcare.
 
“I am proud of the dedication our physicians and staff show each day within the community,” Forgey said. “Because of their Patient First commitment, we are able to recruit and retain physicians who provide the community with excellent medical care.”
 
The medical center expansion reinforces Schneck’s commitment to providing the most advanced technology and high-quality, accessible care.
