FAIRHOPE — USA Health celebrated the dedication of the Mapp Family Campus Medical Office Building last week, a three-story 50,000-square-foot structure that anchors the health system's largest presence in Baldwin County.
The building houses Baldwin Family Medicine and several USA Health specialty care providers for adults and children.
"Collaborating with community physicians, providers from USA Health are bringing their specialized expertise to meet the healthcare needs of people in the region," said Owen Bailey, M.S.H.A., FACHE, chief executive officer and senior associate vice president for medical affairs at USA Health. "As the only academic healthcare system in the region, USA Health continues to expand relationships with community providers and other partners as we strive to provide increased access to the care that people need and deserve."
Officials estimate that 50 percent of Baldwin County residents reside within 15 miles of the Mapp Family Campus, located at the intersection of state highways 181 and 104, just outside of Fairhope.
"The Mapp Family Campus will be another important location for educating and training the next generation of healthcare providers," said John V. Marymont, M.D., M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs and dean of the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama. "Having this additional site also will allow USA Health to help alleviate some of the healthcare provider shortages being faced in our region."
Additionally, a 24,000 -square-foot ambulatory surgery center is scheduled to be complete in 2023.
Standing three stories tall, the medical office building is home to Baldwin Family Medicine and USA Health specialty care providers who are uniquely qualified to meet the healthcare needs of people in the region. Specialties include endocrinology, urology, gastroenterology, urogynecology, colorectal surgery and general surgery. Pediatric specialties include surgery, urology, gastroenterology, cardiology, endocrinology and pulmonary. The building also will house a full array of imaging technology, including X-ray, mammography, ultrasound and CT.
Within the facility, USA Health physicians and other providers will incorporate health and wellness strategies for patients along with traditional medicine. A demonstration kitchen is included in the building, giving patients and caregivers the opportunity to engage patients in healthy-eating classes with the goal of helping people lead longer, better lives.
