SOMC announces plans to construct medical building in West Union

Southern Ohio Medical Center has purchased 2.5 acres in the Adams County Commerce Park and is currently in the planning and design stages of constructing a medical building there. The building will host the practice of Drs. John and Angela Shupert, who recently joined the SOMC Medical Care Foundation.

“We are thrilled to welcome Drs. John and Angela Shupert to our team, and we are excited to have a physical presence in Adams County,” SOMC President and CEO Randy Arnett said. “Adams County is in SOMC’s ‘Top 5’ of counties for patient volumes, and we are looking forward to being able to better serve our growing number of patients in the area.”

“Our goal is to begin construction early in 2013,” Justin Clark, director of plant operations at SOMC, said. “We are still in the process of determining the scope of our services to be offered at the facility and will provide more details as they become available.”
