41,000-Square-Foot Addition to Existing Medical Office Building B
Alton Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the start of construction for a new Medical Office Building.
The new building will connect to the current Medical Office Building B. The $8 million project will add 41,000 square feet of new office space (on two floors) to the campus. Upon completion, the new space is expected to accommodate offices for pediatrics, primary care, OB/GYN, internal medicine, psychiatry and an outpatient lab. The building is tentatively scheduled to open in early 2018.
“A primary goal for our organization is to improve access to care for our patients,” said AMH President Dave Braasch. “As we continue to recruit new physicians and mid-level providers such as nurse practitioners to the community, we need to ensure there is suitable, well designed space in which the team can deliver top-notch care to our patients using the new care delivery model. We believe it will be a positive development for our patients, medical staff, employees and the communities we serve.”
The architect for the project is Archimages, a leader and innovator in sustainable health care design. The project’s general contractor is the Korte Company.
