The clinic project is an estimated $8.4 million project which will attach JCH&L Fairbury Clinic to the west side of the health center. It will include a new main entrance to the facility and a future new office area.
“The new location for the clinic will be much more convenient for our clinic patients, especially when they also need hospital services,” Dr. Burke Kline, CEO said. “It will modernize the clinic, provide better internal handicap accessibility, allow for easier use of technology, and increase the clinic space to allow us to continue to grow.”
Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Monday, Oct. 19, 2020. Final completion of the project is anticipated before the end of 2021.
During construction the front entrance circle drive will be closed and the main entrance will not be accessible. The main driveway and the north H Street parking lot will be accessible, along with the new parking just west of Cedarwood. The Emergency Room and Outpatient Services will be accessed ONLY from 22nd Street. Some new parking will also be added south of the health center building, and will be accessible from 22nd Street.
