Lauth Breaks Ground on Medical Office Building in Pennsylvania for PinnacleHealth

MECHANICSBURG, PA (May 24, 2007) – Lauth joined officials from PinnacleHealth, State Sen. Patricia Vance, State Rep. Glen Grell, and members of the Fredricksen family to break ground on a state-of-the-art medical office building integrated with the Fredricksen Outpatient Center, on the PinnacleHealth Cumberland Campus.

The 60,000 square foot Class A medical office building will be connected to the outpatient center on two levels. It features ample parking and is conveniently located near the I-81 and 944 interchange. The building is expected to open next spring.

“This facility will offer physicians and patients state-of-the-art medical care across a number of specialties,” said Lance Collins, First Vice President of Healthcare at Lauth. “As one of the nation’s leading healthcare developers, we are excited to begin construction of this facility with PinnacleHealth, one of the leading healthcare systems.”

The Fredricksen Outpatient Center is currently home to the West Shore Surgery Center. The services located in the new medical office building will promote cross-specialty referrals within the campus. Lauth offers ownership in the project to qualified physician tenants.

“With this groundbreaking, PinnacleHealth celebrates another milestone in providing leading-edge care to Central Pennsylvania. This new physician office building represents our proven commitment to the community, enhancing our operations through advanced technology, equipment, facilities and services,” said Roger Longenderfer, M.D., President and CEO of PinnacleHealth.

Lauth, the 13th largest healthcare developer in the nation according to Modern Healthcare, currently has nearly two-dozen facilities under construction or development across the nation. Last week, Lauth opened the 85,000 SF Bon Secours Health Center at Virginia Beach, VA. The company also celebrated the topping off of INTECH Three, a 154,000 SF Class A office building in Indianapolis.
