Westfield—Riverview Health recently purchased 8.6 acres of land near Westfield High School on the northeast corner of US 31 and State Road 32 for a new care center. This comes as part of a partnership between Riverview Health and Westfield Schools, which was announced in June.
“Our intent is to build a 30,000-40,000-square-foot ambulatory care building to service not only the school employees and students, but the Westfield community in general,”
said Larry Christman, chief operating officer at Riverview Health. “This will allow us to build vital relationships with the community and provide exceptional, high-quality care to the people of Westfield.”
Plans for the new clinic include multiple physician services as well as lab, radiology, fitness and physical therapy services. The care center will also house an outpatient pharmacy and the school system employee clinic.
As part of the long-term partnership with Westfield Washington Schools, Riverview Health will also serve as the exclusive healthcare provider for its students and employees, which includes the employee clinic and outpatient pharmacy as well as school nurses and an athletic training program.
