Conemaugh plans center

JOHNSTOWN — Conemaugh Health System has confirmed the purchase of land in Ebensburg and will begin construction of a comprehensive outpatient center. The 40,000-square-foot building will be constructed at Route 219 and Route 22.

“We are pleased to officially announce our plans to open a new outpatient center in Ebensburg,” said Steve Tucker, CEO of Conemaugh Health System, in a statement. “Conemaugh has been providing high-quality medical care in Ebensburg for more than 30 years, and our investment in this center will make it even more convenient for patients to access great health care, close to home.”

The new Conemaugh Ebensburg Outpatient Center will provide a one-stop, convenient location for a variety of outpatient services, consolidating and expanding existing imaging and lab services, as well as primary and specialty care physician offices.

Construction on the site is expected to begin in October and will take about 12 months to complete.
