(Batesville, Ind.) - Whether you need to set up your child’s well check with a pediatrician or an annual physical with your family practice doctor, you’ll be able to schedule it all under one roof by 2013. This fall, MMCH will start construction on a new medical office building called the Margaret Mary Physician Center.
Located just off State Road 229 near The Hansen Center, this 28,650 square foot building will include pediatric, surgical, OB/GYN and family practice office space. Physicians who will be moving to the new location include the Cincinnati Children’s pediatricians from Children’s Health Care; Michelle Biltz, MD; Kimberly Kick, MD; Gloria Brelage, MD; Brian Albers, MD; Jon Geers, MD; Thomas Brown, MD and Jeffrey Hatcher, MD.
In addition to physician offices, the new facility will offer on-site X-ray and laboratory services, as well as a café serving both hot and cold drinks and deli sandwiches.
"Children's Health Care has been in the current building for more than 15 years,” said Scott Callahan, MD. “It has been a great location and we are all sad to be leaving. We are excited about the new location providing decreased patient wait times, on-site access to radiology and lab services and the ability to have Cincinnati Children's Hospital specialists available at the same location.”
With more than 13 medical professionals under one roof, patients should also benefit from the collaboration and partnership that come from physicians working together in close proximity.
“Having so many services in one facility will be a great convenience for patients,” said Jeffrey Hatcher, MD. “They will save time by not having to drive to different places to receive care.”
