Clarion Hospital construction project begins

From staff reports

The former Clarion University Foundation Technology Center, which was purchased by Butler Health System Clarion Hospital last year, is under construction, according to a BHS news release.

The new facility, which has yet to be named, is at Trinity Point in Clarion off Route 68 and Interstate 80.

The facility will focus on community health and wellness, with a special focus on lifestyle medicine. It will offer community education on nutrition, exercise, chronic disease management and ways to improve and maintain overall health.

It will house BHS Women’s Care, which will include full service OB/GYN services; state-of-the-art 3D mammography; bone density (DEXA) testing; women’s ultrasound; and a full array of diagnostics and services for women.

It also will house BHS cardiovascular care.

BHS Pulmonary Care and BHS Endocrinology will be present, with additional medical and surgical specialties to be added.

BHS Clarion will have an entire floor dedicated to Family Healthcare of Clarion, the hospital’s family practice residency program.

The facility is slated to open during late summer.
