The new SBL Casey Clinic likely will open in February 2017. Construction on the clinic began in early spring 2016 on land that was purchased in 2015, and it replaces an old and inefficient building that has housed the clinic for more than three decades.
The new site, located at 934 N. Route 49, near Interstate 70, will replace the long-standing facility at 412 NW Third Street, Casey. Similar to other clinics, it will have a drive-up canopied entrance and brick facade. The new 9,491-square-foot clinic will feature family practice and have space for a potential Walk-In Clinic, 10 exam rooms, diagnostic imaging, laboratory services, speech and hearing offices, physical and occupational therapy, an office for Lincolnland Home Care and a procedure room. Occupational Medicine is also planned for this location.
Utz and Associates of Effingham is the architect on this project. Construction is estimated to take six to eight months and cost approximately $2 million.
