STATELINE (WIFR) -- Two local medical clinics have announced major expansion projects. One is expected to take over a building that has sat empty for nearly a decade.
Rockford Orthopedic will open another location at the former Eagle Grocery Store at the corner of Riverside Boulevard at Mulford Road. We got an inside look at the construction project today. The company has another clinic near OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center. Their second location will open next spring.
Freeport's Monroe Clinic is also adding to its facility. Today the company broke ground on a $600,000 construction project, which will make room for more specialty and primary care services. Right now 16 providers work in the building, which can make things a little crowded. The clinic's director says employees are looking forward to the extra space, which should be available in December.
