Sarah Bush Lincoln Growth
In July 2016, Sarah Bush Lincoln announced plans to expand cardiology services with a new Heart Center to be constructed on the south side of the existing Health Center.
Construction is underway on the new SBL Casey Clinic on land purchased in 2015 near Interstate 70. It will replace an old and inefficient building that has housed the clinic for more than two decades.
Walk-In Clinic, Mattoon
Construction is underway on a new Walk-In Clinic in Mattoon, just south of it current location in Mattoon Marketplace.
The new facility will double the size of the clinic and better accommodate the volume of people who seek medical care at this location.
2 East is receiving a major renovation to update the 22-bed unit into single occupancy rooms, which will be used by medical and surgical adult patients. The rooms will have the same amenities and look and feel as the newly remodeled adult patient rooms.
Construction began July 6, 2015 and it will take approximately 18 months to complete.
The 3-West construction project began mid-July, 2015 and is complete awaiting inspection by the Illinois Department of Public Health. In addition to bringing the unit up to the standards that we have on other nursing units, we are focusing on implementation of several safety features. This includes moving the nurse’s station to the west end of the unit.
The Women & Children's Center is home to Labor and Delivery, Pediatrics and Gynecology patients. It is undergoing a renovation, along with the east end of the second floor, which totals $7 million. The complete project is expected to take about two years to complete.
