In a move intended to fill suburban health-care needs and expand its network, Mercy plans to open a $12.7 million emergency services and diagnostic center in Perrysburg by the fall of 2013.
The center is to be open 24 hours a day and is to provide hospital-quality emergency care, said Andrea Price, president and chief executive officer of the health-care network. She told The Blade's editorial board about the plan on Monday.
The facility, which has the working name of Mercy Emergency and Diagnostic Center, initially is to be 15,000 square feet. It is to be near the entrance ramp of State Rt. 25 (Dixie Highway) to northbound I-475/U.S. 23. Access to the facility would be from Eckel Junction Road.
