Edgewood City Schools and Atrium Medical Center to Partner for Good Health
Trenton, Ohio (April 18, 2013) – Edgewood City Schools and Atrium Medical Center have signed a letter of intent to expand their partnership with a medical office building on the school campus. The building, which will also house the school’s Central Registration offices, will bring more convenient medical services to the Edgewood community.
The 14,000 square-foot building, which will be located at 5005 Trenton Oxford Road, will be owned by Edgewood City Schools and will be financed by leasing space to Atrium Medical Center. The facility will contain the offices of Trenton Family Medicine, as well as laboratory, medical imaging and room for other medical specialists.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Edgewood City Schools by supporting the development of this medical office building,” says Carol J. Turner, president and CEO of Atrium Medical Center. “The services in this building will answer several community needs by bringing comprehensive, caring and high-quality health care to students, staff and residents of Trenton and the surrounding communities. We applaud both the city and school leaders for their commitment to bringing leading medical services to this community.”
This building is scheduled to open during the 2013/14 school year.
“Our students, families, staff and the community at large all stand to benefit from this expanded relationship with Atrium Medical Center,” says Jim Wirtley, president of the Edgewood School Board. “We are thrilled to work with a respected health care provider that shows such a firm commitment to serving the needs of our community in a comprehensive way.”
Atrium Medical Center initially partnered with Edgewood City Schools in 2012 with an athletic training contract. Services provided by Atrium include on-site injury evaluation, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Atrium Medical Center provides similar services to 19 area schools in 12 local districts.
