First two occupants of new AAMC building to move in Monday

The Anne Arundel Medical Center Breast Center and Anne Arundel Diagnostics, a hospital affiliate, are scheduled to move Monday into their new home on the growing Medical Park campus - a six-story ambulatory health services building named for Lesly and Pat Sajak.

The breast center and diagnostic radiology facility are moving from the Clatanoff Pavilion at Medical Park to become the first occupants of the building - named for the game show host and broadcasting executive and his wife in recognition of their $1 million donation to the breast center. The couple lives in Severna Park.

The six-story Sajak Pavilion will open in stages, according to Carolyn Core, AAMC's vice president of corporate services. Future occupants will include a new vascular center and a diabetes center.

AAMC's community health and wellness center and its public relations department will move into the 150,000-square-foot building from the downtown hospital, along with the Clothes Box consignment shop operated by the hospital auxiliary.

Core estimates the cost of the Sajak building project at $25 million. Full occupancy is expected to coincide with the opening of AAMC's new acute care hospital at the suburban campus this fall.
