The $25 million center, Excela Square at Latrobe, is envisioned as a one-stop site for health services modeled after the Westmoreland County care provider’s Excela Square at Norwin. Construction began on this 115,000sf facility, mid-2016 and currently our team is working on the interiors on multiple floors. Activities leading to this point have included excavation and remediation, coordination with local government, Latrobe Airport and the FAA on permits for both the building and use of a crane needed to erect the street; construction of a massive temporary water basin, on-going BIM Coordination meetings with the team, including major subcontractors, architect, engineers and construction manager.
The first floor will feature a wound center, physical therapy and occupational medicine services, as well as laboratory and imaging services — including areas for mammography, ultrasound scans and bone-density testing.
The second floor will include practices for primary care physicians and specialists in orthopedics, cardiology and gastroenterology. The third floor will house obstetrics and family planning practices, along with a central location for the hospital’s family residency program, which has graduated nearly 200 family physicians over the past 40 years.
Additional details of the areas inside this three-floor medical building include, but are not limited to:
- Xray rooms
- Radiation rooms
- CT Scan rooms
- Children’s Activity Center
- Rehabilitative and Diagnostic Services areas
- Outpatient Facility
- Café & Outdoor Seating Area
Excela Square at Latrobe will serve as an extension of Excela Latrobe Hospital while consolidating other services available at 16 separate sites. The building will also be supplemented by 350 parking spaces.
“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.”
– Robert Rogalski, Excela Health’s Chief Executive Officer.
