Sayre, Pa. – Following the devastating flood of last fall, Guthrie Clinic is planning a renovation and expansion of the regional office in downtown Athens, Pennsylvania.
The facility suffered nearly $300,000 worth of damage and forced the staff to relocate to the main Guthrie Clinic campus in Sayre. Plans are now underway for an expansion that would add 1600 square feet of additional space and bring the total number of exam rooms to nine.
The Athens location sees 11,000 patient visits a year.
Guthrie Clinic President and CEO Joseph Scopelliti, MD, said, “Guthrie feels a special connection to the residents of Athens and we have every intention of being a part of that community for many years to come. We look forward to moving into an expanded facility as soon as possible.”
The work is slated to be completed in the Fall of 2012.
