People who live between Rockford and Beloit soon won't have to drive far for emergency care. Beloit Memorial Hospital is constructing a new $45 million health and wellness center just north of Roscoe. It will provide immediate care and ambulatory services.
Several family practice and specialized physicians will also operate out of the campus. Patients will be able to go for a swim upstairs in wellness center pools. But the first part of the project will include an assisted living center.
"That will be 24 apartments that will provide services to seniors if they need it. There will be nursing, P.T., O.T. and we will be able to expand to have 48 apartments as the need warrants," said Greg Britton, CEO and President of Beloit Memorial Hospital.
Britton says people looking for a job at the site should check their website in September. It's www.northpointehealth.org
