“The Christ Hospital’s mission is to provide the best outcomes and the finest experiences, all in (an) affordable way,” said Mike Keating, President and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network in a press release.  “We look forward to extending our reach and convenient access to exceptional medical care to our patients and consumers in Butler County.”

Christ officials said they are working closely with township trustees on the project.  

A map of the site indicates the new facility will be built at Interstate 75 and the Butler County Veterans Highway (OH-129).  The hospital did not reveal an exact size or the cost of the new facility.  

Christ officials said the center will have surgical services, an emergency room, imaging services and a number of physicians will see patients there.  

A groundbreaking is tentatively planned for this fall and it could be open for business in the winter of 2017.
