Sarah Bush Lincoln broke ground last week for a clinic on land it owns along US 36 in Tuscola in front of the Tanger Outlet Mall.
The new clinic will feature primary care, a walk-in clinic with extended hours in the evening and on the weekend, occupational medicine, laboratory and diagnostic imaging. It will also feature space for visiting specialists. It is expected to cost $1.5 million to complete.
Similar to Sarah Bush Lincoln’s other Walk-In Clinics in Mattoon and Charleston, the Walk-In clinic is often visited by people with acute illnesses who are unable to see their medical provider.
The facility will be approximately 6,200 square feet, with a full brick façade and a drive up canopied entrance to create easier access to the building. Construction is expected to take six to eight months to complete.
The architect is Hurst-Rosche and Upchurch Group. Wohltman Construction is the general contractor. For more information, contact Tim Kastl, Sarah Bush Lincoln Facilities Services director, 258-2537.
