Heart of Ohio Family Health (HOFH) has been working in communities throughout central Ohio since 2003 ensuring that all residents, regardless of their education, age, race, ethnicity or income, have access to affordable, reliable health care. In 2017, the City of Whitehall donated three acres of land to HOFH with a mission to help transform Whitehall by building a one-stop health care shop for the entire community.
In 2019, Miles-McClellan Construction joined the mission when it broke ground on the new James B. Feibel Health Center which replaced HOFH’s previous Whitehall location and doubled its capacity.
The new 21,500 SF center, HOFH’s fifth facility in central Ohio, not only allows Heart of Ohio Family Health to serve more patients but also to offer new services with a laboratory, a community room, and enhanced prenatal services, as well as an in-house pharmacy, dentistry and more.
HOFH Chief Operations Officer, Yammah Morgan, said it was a pleasure working with Miles-McClellan Construction. “Their proactive engagement with our administration assured efficient planning and execution of the onsite, project development and engineering aspects and helped the project stay on schedule during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and through a difficult winter.”
The medical office building incudes nine obstetrical and prenatal rooms, 16 medical and behavioral health exam rooms, and patient care rooms allowing HOFH to provide much-needed health services to the community including family practice, pediatrics, women’s health, mental health and substance use disorder treatment, dietetics and nutrition.
“This inviting and state-of-the-art center serves as the realization of our mission to provide high-quality, holistic and compassionate care to meet the health care needs of everyone in our diverse community, one heart at a time,” said Morgan.
The center is named after James B. Feibel, a founding board member of Heart of Ohio Family Health who passed away in 2018. He was known for being an outstanding community leader and an advocate for the underserved.
HOFH recognized Miles-McClellan Construction with a 2022 Giving Hearts Award at this year’s Giving Hearts Celebration. “We were honored to recognize Miles-McClellan Construction for enhancing the access to quality healthcare for generations to come,” said HOFH CEO Dr. Buhari Mohammed, “and to acknowledge their comprehension of our aspirations and their dedication to make it become a reality.”
