Mercy Health Howland Ambulatory facility plans.

HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Mercy Health Youngstown will break ground in May on a $14.5 million, 50,000 square foot, outpatient ambulatory facility.

The new facility will be built adjacent to Mercy Health Youngtown’s existing Howland Surgery Center and will bring together physician offices, rehabilitation services, diagnostic imaging and lab services into one location, according to a news release from the hospital.

A key feature of the new facility will be access to physicians, both primary care and specialists, in one centrally located facility.

“In this setting, the primary care physicians will serve as the hub,” said Dr. James Kravec, president of Mercy Health Physicians – Youngstown. “We also will have onsite specialists from areas including surgery, orthopedics, physical medicine, and ear, nose and throat (ENT) making it more efficient to schedule and treat patients.”
