As part of its ongoing investment in central Illinois, OSF HealthCare broke ground Wednesday on its new Medical Office Building in Bloomington. The new building will be located on the OSF HealthCare St. Joseph Medical Center campus at 210 St. Joseph Drive. The 24 million dollars, 53-thousand square foot, three-story building will be home to primary care providers, OSF PromptCare, Infusion Clinic, occupational health services and OSF HealthCare Cardiovascular Institute.
In this new building, OSF HealthCare Mission Partners will provide services tailored for each patient, no matter how they access health care.
According to Boore, the new medical office building will offer a valuable service to Bloomington and the surrounding communities, when it comes to access to care.
The first floor will contain an OSF PromptCare and occupational health services. The second floor of the building will house the OSF HealthCare Cardiovascular Institute. This will include 20 exam rooms, an Infusion Clinic and 6 procedure rooms for non-invasive testing. This new location will bring together cardiovascular services that are currently spread out over three locations on the medical center campus. According to Dr. Yogesh Agarwal, Lead Physician for OSF HealthCare Cardiovascular Instituteâ€™s Eastern Region, this setup could help improve a patientâ€™s overall health.
When construction is complete, a number of OSF HealthCare primary care and family medicine providers will be relocated to the third-floor clinic area. The new space will have 25 exam rooms, a procedure room and three stations for lab work such as blood draws.
Construction is expected to be completed in August of 2019.
