New medical office building opens in Mississippi
May 25, 2017 · Projects
Merit Health Madison recently cut the ribbon on its new medical office building in Canton, Mississippi. The 35,000-square-foot healthcare facility, designed by GMC, includes primary care, obstetrics/gynecology and orthopedics, among other medical specialties. Located next to Merit Health’s existing 67-bed hospital, the building features an outpatient physical rehabilitation clinic to provide patients occupational health and speech pathology therapy services.
With the extensive population growth, residential development and economic surge in Madison County over the past five years, providing a new location for the addition of medical specialties and physician practices will enhance access to quality healthcare for those living and working in the area. The new medical facility joins Merit Health’s extensive network of 12 in-state hospitals and will allow patients in north Madison County to visit their physician in Canton, rather than traveling to Jackson.
Capital Growth Medvest is the developer for the project, and Brasfield & Gorrie served as the general contractor.
