Long-time health practice moving next year

CAMBRIDGE CITY — A longtime community physician practice will move to a former department store along Indiana State Road 1, allowing it to expand to better meet the health care needs of the area.

Reid Health recently purchased what’s known as the Alco and CVS building at 1122 South State Road 1. James Bertsch, D.O., who has practiced in the community more than 40 years, will relocate Cambridge City Family Medicine to the space sometime in 2020.

“The existing offices, in one of the city’s historic properties, couldn’t handle all the things the practice will be in five or 10 years,” he said.

Craig Kinyon, Reid Health president/CEO, said the expansion reflects the health system’s commitment to providing easily accessible care to the region. 

The new offices will expand to 18 patient rooms from the current seven, be able to add X-ray and lab services, and have bays for the Reid Health Ambulance Service now stationed in Cambridge. There will also be room to add more providers, up to six from the two now, Dr. Bertsch and Ramona Orschell, NP.

The 27,000 square foot building houses CVS Pharmacy, which will remain in its space, Reid Health officials said. Reid Health’s remodel will use about 18,000 square feet.
