UH Samaritan building new facility in Mansfield, bringing jobs to the area

Demolition of the former Big Lots building on Ashland Road in Mansfield will begin in late July or early August for site preparation of a $17 million University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center facility.

Once open, the new medical site will generate additional jobs, including medical office staff, housekeeping and maintenance.

While a groundbreaking date has not been set, the project is in its preliminary stages of design with CBLH Design, Inc from Cleveland, Ohio.

The two-story building’s first floor will house urgent care, laboratory, radiology, physical therapy and community spaces for educational needs, including screenings.  The second floor of the medical facility will feature office suites for specialists and physicians.

“We’re excited about expanding our footprint in the community,” said Karen McNeil, president of UH Samaritan Medical Center. “We welcome any opportunity to improve our patients’ access to health care, and when you can capitalize on that while also creating local jobs, it’s a win-win situation for all.”
