Crusader Community Health will open a brand new clinic in Rockford.
Officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday at the new, 21,000 square foot facility near Alpine and Guilford, on the site of the old Brookside Clinic. The new clinic will have 24 rooms, a patient education room, and a lab area.
Crusader says the new location will help them serve the most number of patients.
“This is [the result of] a few years of planning to put one right in the middle of Rockford,” said Crusader’s President and CEO Gordon Eggers, Jr. “[It will] give people access … to primary care.”
Construction on the new clinic is expected to be complete by early spring 2017.
