GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Mercy Health officials cut the ribbon Tuesday on a new $240 million, West Side facility.

The 250-bed, Mercy Health - West Hospital will officially open in November. It features several new services not previously offered in the area, including a heart center, cancer center, family birth center, women's center and a comprehensive orthopaedic's program.

Amenities include all private patient rooms with distinct zones: a staff zone, patient zone and family zone. The family zone includes a sleeper sofa and desk with separate lighting, officials say.

The campus also has a community and education center, as well as green space, a water garden and a walking/biking trail.

A community open house is planned for Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. offering tours of the new facility.

Officials first broke ground on the new hospital in 2010. Mercy Health - West is located on 60 acres of land along North Bend Road, near I-74 in Green Township.
