HAPPENING TODAY: Rome Health open house to provide view of new $14.8M Medical Center

ROME — Rome Health will host an open house today from 4 to 6 p.m., giving members of the community an opportunity to tour its new $11.4 million Medical Center addition to its main campus at 1500 N. James St.

“Increasing access to primary care has been a critical need for our community,” said Rome Health Chief Operating Officer Ryan Thompson.

“We invite our community to tour the Medical Center to see how we’ve created an environment that will help us increase capacity to provide greater access for our patients. This innovative design supports the workflows of our providers and care teams so they can just focus on our patients,” Thompson added.

Attendees should use the parking lot off Oak Street to enter the Medical Center through the Bartlett Entrance. Masks are required.

The new Medical Center brings together primary care, surgical specialists, diagnostic testing and Rome Health’s retail pharmacy under one roof for convenient, accessible, coordinated patient care.

Providers from the hospital’s existing off-campus locations will move into the new 31,000-square-foot, two-story Medical Center over the next three months. Delta Health Center will relocate in November and become part of Rome Health Primary Care.

Rome Medical Group (adult medicine and pediatrics) will join Rome Health Primary Care in January. Bariatric and general surgeons from Rome Health Surgical Specialists will also relocate to the Medical Center in January.

The Medical Center design supports providers and their care teams in delivering patient-centered care that is efficient and convenient. There are six care team pods with a total of 42 exam rooms. The innovative pod design includes six exam rooms with adjacent space for the care team and the providers to collaborate.

The proximity of adjacent services at the hospital, including medical imaging, cardiopulmonary services and cardiology, further enhances accessibility for patients who may need multiple services.
