Advocate BroMenn Medical Center Proceeds With Plans For Eastside Building
June 17, 2010
Advocate BroMenn Medical Center is proceeding with plans to construct a 90,000-gross- square-foot medical office building at the northwest corner of Trinity Lane and Empire Street in Bloomington.
Hospital officials this week filed an application for a Certificate of Need (CON) for the project from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board (IHFSRB). When the application is deemed complete by the IHFSRB, it will be scheduled for review at one of the Board's upcoming meetings.
While the largest portion of the building will be devoted to leased office space for approximately 30 primary care and specialty physicians, some outpatient hospital services will also be relocated there. These will include outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy services; women's health services, including mammography and bone densitometry; and outpatient lab services.
Plans call for Advocate Medical Group's HealthPoint urgent care and occupational medicine clinic to also relocate to the new building.
"With the continued growth of our community, this new building will not only help meet the demand for more physicians, but will also provide convenient, easy access for the many people who utilize these outpatient services," said Steve Holman, BroMenn's vice president of Planning and Support Services.
Holman added that the hospital hopes to receive IHFSRB approval on the project in time to break ground this fall, with expected completion in 2012.
