Excela Health broke ground yesterday afternoon on its newest patient-centered medical home, Excela Square at Latrobe. A. Martini & Co. will serve as the General Contractor for this $40 million, 115,000sf complex located off Route 30 in Unity Township. The new facility will be a three-story state-of-the-art ambulatory care center. Following in the footsteps of their highly successful facility in Norwin, Excela Square, and this location will offer patients access to primary and specialty care, diagnostic testing and rehabilitation services, all under one roof. The facility will also house Excela Health’s nationally recognized Family Medicine Residency Program led by Latrobe Hospital.
“The new facility is a culmination of a comprehensive strategic plan completed by Excela Health which examined our hospitals, patient procedures and outcomes, and trends in health care to determine current and future needs,” said Robert Rogalski, Excela Health’s Chief Executive Officer.
Over the last several years, there has been a growing movement within the health care industry to cluster essential services within outpatient settings to better integrate patient needs, prevent avoidable outcomes, and thereby manage service costs more effectively. The patient-centered medical home is a recognized and recommended national model of primary care that improves care and the patient experience while reducing costs. “We’re creating a high-quality care delivery model that works now and in the future,” said Rogalski.
“A. Martini & Co. has a long-standing relationship with Excela Health,” said Angelo Martini, Sr., CEO. “We are honored to have been selected by Excela Health to construct their latest, state-of-the-art facility. We have assembled an innovative, energetic, and experienced team for this project and are looking forward to building another highly successful facility for the Excela healthcare network and continuing our track record of success with this valuable partner.”
