A new medical office building and outpatient center will be developed by St. Clair Hospital on a nearly three-acre site along Rt. 19, just south of Donaldson's Cross Roads, in McMurray, Peters Township.
Ground-breaking for the complex is expected to occur this year, with a possible opening in 2011, said spokesman Richard Sieber.
The site, occupied by a Lorenzi home improvement center and the former Arthur Murray dance studio, was purchased for a combined price of $2.995 million, according to deeds filed in Washington County.
Detailed plans for the new building are still being formulated, said Barry S. Zaiser, senior vice president at St. Clair. He said the hospital paid cash for the properties.
More than 40 St. Clair physicians have offices in the Peters area, and they will help decide what use will be made of the clinic, he said.
This will be St. Clair Hospital's third outpatient facility in the region. Already in operation are an MRI Center on Broughton Road and an outpatient center opposite South Hills Village Shopping Center in Upper St. Clair.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
