MANSFIELD, OH - University Hospitals will be building a new facility in Mansfield. 

The new location will be located at the former Big Lots building on Ashland Road. Demolition of the building begins in late July or early August. 

The site will be prepared for a $17 million University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center Facility. The two-story building will house an urgent care, laboratory, radiology, physical therapy and community spaces for educational needs, including screenings, all on the first floor. 

Once open, the new medical site will generate additional jobs, including medical office staff, housekeeping, and maintenance, according to a press release. 

"We're excited about expanding our footprint in the community," said Karen McNeil, president of UH Samaritan Medical Center, said. "We welcome any opportunity to improve our patients' access to health care, and when you can capitalize on that while also creating local jobs, its a win-win situation for all."

    A 40-year-old man was arrested in the shooting death of a 33-year- old woman at the Stony Creek Apartments in Ashland shortly early Monday morning. Ashland Police say officers were dispatched to apartment B at 230 Mathews Avenue at 1:49 a.m.. Police say residents were hearing gunshots coming from the inside of an adjacent apartment and the bullets were coming through the walls. As police officers and an Ashland County Sheriff's deputy entered the building, they heard gun hots coming from inside apartment A. The officers found the entry door barricaded so they provided cover as the occupants of apartment B evacuated, as well as the building's other residents. A cell phone dialogue was established with the 40-year-old man. At 3:49 a.m., he removed the barricade, exited the apartment unarmed, and was taken into custody. The body of the 33-year-old woman was located inside apartment A and a cause of death has not been determined, although she had a visible gunshot wound. The 40-year-old man is in custody at the Ashland County Jail but no charges have been filed as an investigation continues. Officers from the Ashland County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol provided perimeter security at the scene.
