Breaking Ground on New Outpatient Facility

WASHINGTON HEALTH SYSTEM  - Breaking Ground on New Outpatient Facility


WASHINGTON PA, August, 2016 — Washington Health System announced today that it will soon add a new facility to its integrated network of care. The new facility will be an outpatient center located in California, PA and will be the new home of WHS Family Medicine - California.  This WHS Washington Physicians Group practice has been serving the local residents and the students of CAL U since 2004.  The outpatient center will also house a lab draw site, space for specialty physicians as well as additional space to add diagnostic and other services in the future. 


The facility, Washington Health System Outpatient Center – California, will be a single-story, 9,000-square-foot building conveniently located off the California Turnpike exit, in the California Technology Park. Construction, once underway, will take approx. 8 months and the facility will celebrate its grand opening in summer of 2017.  



On August 30th, 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony was held on site. Those in attendance included Washington County Commissioners Larry Maggi and Harlan Shober, State Rep. Peter Daley and other local elected officials, representatives from Washington Health System’s board of trustees and administration, and a variety of other business and community members.


During the event, Gary Weinstein, President and CEO of Washington Health System said, “The practice of Allison Verenna, M. D. and the care team at WHS Family Medicine—California has outgrown its current facility on Third Street in California.  This new facility, still located in the borough of California, will offer better parking, easier access for most patients, and enough space to add a second family physician to enable the growing practice to continue to serve more of the area’s residents locally.  We appreciate the help of the borough, the Redevelopment Authority, the county commissioners, California University and everyone else who has supported the planning and development of this project.”
