BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- OSF expands its roots in Belvidere, opening a new medical center.
OSF medical staff welcomed visitors to their brand new 15,000 square foot facility. Urgent and primary care will be taken care of in this new building. It has 17 exam rooms and also includes state of the art equipment including 3D mammograms, CT scans and MRI's.
"The strategy is to take care of populations, and a good way to do that is to have different centers throughout the community. That way you can extend your health care services to the community at large. Our task is to help make the community healthy," says Chuck Brackett, Manager at OSF Laboratory Outreach Services.
The new center will open on Tuesday, April 1st.
