Groundbreaking Ceremony Held for $16 Million Medical Office Building in Pekin

Progressive Health Systems and the City of Pekin hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on March 23rd for the new $16 million ProHealth Medical Office Building to be located at the corner of Griffin Avenue and Veterans Drive in Pekin, Illinois.

The 62,000-square-foot building will house multiple providers in Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Basic lab and x-ray services will be included in the new facility.

“I think today is a great example of what can happen when public and private sectors work together to support something very special for the whole community,” said Pekin Mayor John McCabe. “It is our hope that this new medical facility will not only advance the medical community but will serve as an anchor for future development, which will benefit this entire region.”

The project is a collaboration between the City of Pekin and Progressive Health Systems, the parent organization for ProHealth Medical Group. Construction on the new building is expected to begin later this spring with completion targeted for the fall of 2017.

“Thank you to everyone who contributed to this important community project, including our generous donors,” said Bob Haley, CEO of Progressive Health Systems. “The new facility will expand medical services throughout the region and allow us to recruit additional physicians and medical professionals to Pekin.”
