Signature Health Ashtabula Invites Public Comments on Upcoming Renovation and Expansion Plans
Signature Health Ashtabula, which occupies the six-story “old Hotel Ashtabula” at 4726 Main Avenue, is designated as a historic property. The building stood vacant for several years before Signature Health leased, renovated and opened the space in 2014 to serve the community through outpatient behavioral health and primary care services. Now, Signature Health is planning new renovations to the building’s 1st, 5th and 6th floors.
“We are committed to preserving the building’s beloved charm while updating and expanding the space to better serve our patients, and meet the growing needs of the Ashtabula community,” said Jonathan Lee, CEO, Signature Health. “The iconic marble staircase, arched windows, high lobby ceilings, and mosaic tile on the first floor, and ballroom on the second floor, will all be preserved. Many locals have fond memories in this historic building, from proms or weddings when it was Hotel Ashtabula, and we’re proud to be part of the fabric of the community in this way.”
On the first floor, renovation plans include expanding the on-site pharmacy and lab areas. To allow for this, primary care services will relocate to the sixth floor.
The now-vacant fifth floor will transform into 6,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated to child and family counseling and a new service called Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).
The now-vacant sixth floor will transform into 6,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated to primary care services, including nine exam rooms, two nurses stations, provider work space, a lab, and reception/waiting areas.
The renovation project is expected to begin in May 2022.
As part of Signature Health’s process, the public is invited to voice any concerns over this project plan. If you have any comments about the renovation’s possible effect on this historic property, please email SH-Marketing@shinc.org no later than February 21, 2022.
