Some services offered at new Winnebago County Health Department
By Katie Nilsson
ROCKFORD (WREX) - Winnebago County's Health Department opens part of its new facility and staff say it's been a smooth transition.
We told you Monday, the new facility at 555 North Court Street is now accepting some new patients. You can go there for maternity or health screenings, immunizations and blood tests. Those services are available on the 2nd and 4th floors of the building. Winnebago County Public Health Director Mike Bacon says eventually, the Health Department will offer more services on other floors. "Provide a much different client flow, a much more efficient client flow and much more integrated set of services so that they don't have to come back a following day or another week for a different set of services."
The Health Department expects to be fully operational in its new building in March. The facility at 401 Division Street is staying open.
