Alton Memorial Hospital has taken another giant leap forward as the area’s health care leader with the opening of its Medical Office Building B expansion.
AMH has added 41,000 square feet to the building that originally opened in 2012. SIHF Healthcare has relocated three of its Alton health centers to take up the entire second floor (Suite 210) of the new part of the building, which has an address of 4 Memorial Drive in Alton.
The building now has an expanded main covered entrance and drop-off area, with plenty of convenient parking for patients.
“The new addition will provide improved access for patients in our community and brings a number of key providers and specialists under one roof,” said Rusty Ingram, AMH director of Business Development.
SIHF Healthcare will continue to provide family and internal medicine, behavioral health services to children and adults, pediatric care, as well as obstetrics and gynecology.
“Alton is a health-focused community, so we are happy to be bringing a new, integrated health center option to the area,” said Cathy Sabolo, manager of SIHF Healthcare in Alton. “Over the years, each of the three health centers has fostered trusting relationships with their patients, treating each person as an individual rather than simply another patient. Our entire team is committed to helping each patient maintain happy, healthy lives. As one large health center on the AMH campus, we will continue to offer integrated care services while providing health care that is personalized, comprehensive, compassionate and efficient.”
