Groundbreaking set for Mercy Hiawatha Medical Park
Mercy Medical Center announces plans to break ground on a new medical park in Hiawatha on Wednesday, Aug. 5 (event details below). Mercy’s Hiawatha Medical Park will consist of three separate projects, including an outpatient surgery center, at 1195 Boyson Road, located directly off Interstate 380.
Mercy will lease space from a local developer in what will be a three-story, 60,000 square foot building. The developer plans to add two stories to an existing single-story building, which was formerly occupied by Duffy’s Collectible Cars.
The Medical Park will include three initial components:
- The third floor of the building will be the site of Mercy’s new outpatient surgery center.
- The second floor will be leased by another tenant (currently in discussions with Wolfe Eye Clinic).
- Discussions are underway to provide additional services on the building’s first floor as an extension of clinic services.
“We are responding to significant demand for conveniently located and more accessible care,” said Tim Charles, Mercy president and CEO. “The needs and wants of our customers are evolving. There’s been a push for many years to provide more treatment on an outpatient basis. This new initiative is extending the reach of The Mercy Touch® to ensure we continue to provide exceptional quality and service more conveniently.”
Charles adds Mercy is excited about working on this project in concert with the city of Hiawatha and being part of the city’s progressive and forward-thinking economic development strategies and leadership.
The Medical Park is scheduled to open in spring 2016.
