A ribbon cutting and open house will be held for the new JCH&L Fairbury Clinic, 2200 H St., on Thursday, June 30.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
JCH&L Fairbury Clinic opened in its new location on Monday, May 16.
The $8.4 million project attached 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 helps provide better service to patients and makes 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.
The new construction also includes a new pediatric therapy area and a new human resources office area.
Patients 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 provides 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.
No decisions have been made yet on the future use of the former clinic building.
