York General CEO Jim Ulrich stated “On behalf of York General, I am excited to announce the addition of health care services near the Highway 81 and Interstate 80 area in York. Final plans have been completed and are out for bids to construct the site and building to house a quick (urgent) care clinic, as well as radiology and laboratory services. We plan to start the ground work in late July; building construction to follow in the summer with an expected completion in the Spring of 2021.”
Board of Directors President Chuck Harris explained, “This has been in the planning phase for years and is now finally becoming a reality for York General and for the benefit of the citizens of York and the surrounding area.”
Ulrich continued, “York General’s mission is to provide regional excellence through enhancing health and providing accessible care. The addition of these health care services will certainly enhance the access to care near the interstate. Furthermore, these additional services achieve our vision of being the region’s trusted choice for the improvement of health and delivery of quality care throughout life. York General, for decades, has had the full range of services from a Critical Access Hospital to Home Health, Dialysis, Skilled Nursing, and Assisted Living. Through a joint venture with York Medical Clinic, York General will further enhance access to primary care with the development of a quick care clinic. Together we will grow in being the trusted choice for medical care in the area by being trusted partners.”
Dr. Andrew Pohlmeier, one of the partners in York Medical Clinic and Chief of Staff at York General, added “York Medical Clinic appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with York General. When we work together, it is a benefit to our health care community.”
Ulrich continued, “This new medical building is also planned to house Quest Diagnostics, the world’s leading provider of diagnostic information services, as tenants to provide for the clinic’s laboratory as well as serve as a reference laboratory for the region. Adding Quest Diagnostics will provide a great boost to the offerings available at this site. The medical plaza will include nearly 8,000 square feet with surrounding parking to also include semi-truck access. The site is located in the Holthus Commercial Center just south of Tractor Supply, just east of the G Force Car Wash, and just north of Walmart.
There are more project details that will be communicated in the weeks ahead, but this is a preview and early announcement of this exciting venture that will further strengthen York, Nebraska, and the surrounding region. Thank you for your continued belief and support of York General now and well into the future.”
