JCH&L Fairbury Clinic will open in its new location on Monday, May 16. The clinic will be closed on Friday, May 13, for the move.
The clinic project is an $8.4 million project which attaches JCH&L Fairbury Clinic to the west side of the health center. It features enhanced handicapped accessibility and infection prevention. Ashley Norden, clinic administrator, said the new facility will help provide better service to patients and make it easier with larger rooms and wider hallways. It provides a negative pressure area and other infection prevention enhancements. Team work spaces will assist staff in cooperating in patient care, and technology improvements will assist with the new electronic health record.
Patients will park in the parking lot north of the new clinic and enter and exit at the main entrance. A circle drive at the main entrance allows for easy drop off and pick up. The main entrance will provide access to the clinic, health center services, and fitness center.
Construction began with groundbreaking in October 2020. The community has provided more than $100,000 in fund-raising support for the project.
A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting is being planned for June.
No decisions have been made yet on the future use of the existing clinic building.
