The 22,000-square-foot facility will employ about 30 people including advanced practicing providers, certified medical assistants, nurses, imaging and lab technicians, and support staff.

Some of the services will include primary care physicians specializing in internal medicine, outpatient lab and imaging services, health education and exercise classes and a community room for socializing and events.

“As more of our baby boomers reach retirement age, we saw an opportunity to change how we provide health care to them in a way that meets their unique and specific needs,” stated Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network.
