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.
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.”
