Shawnee, OK – SSM Health Medical Group in Shawnee celebrated the announcement and groundbreaking for a new ambulatory medical office building at 4651 N. Harrison Avenue, approximately one-half mile south of I-40.  A ceremony commemorating the beginning of construction was held on Monday, December 9.

The 33,000 square foot ambulatory medical building will house primary care and urgent care services on the first floor.  The second floor features a women’s services suite with a spa-like atmosphere with specialty offices for OB/GYN providers, mammography services, aesthetics and dermatology.  Physical therapy services will also be offered in the facility with a separate external entrance for patient convenience.

“We are pleased to reaffirm our commitment to serving Shawnee and surrounding communities by expanding convenient, high-end services,” stated Dr. Kevin L. Lewis, president, SSM Health Medical Group.  “This facility is a new, innovative model for outpatient and physician office services not seen before in our community. The SSM Health Medical Group providers and staff are committed to providing a soothing, upscale environment for a wide range of services for the benefit of our patients.”

SSM Health worked closely with the medical group providers, Miller Architects, and developers Darin Miller and David Neff, to create the innovative, two-story medical office building.  Miller and Neff have a long-standing relationship with SSM Health in Oklahoma, as they designed the successful SSM Health St. Anthony Healthplex campuses, including the newest location recently announced in May in El Reno, Okla.  Construction is expected to be completed by late 2020. Miller-Tippens Construction has been named general contractor.

SSM Health Medical Group will continue to offer services at its locations on Kethley, near SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital – Shawnee, after the opening of the location on Harrison.
