Byron and Rockton residents will have a new place to visit their doctors that's a little closer to home. OSF Medical Group will open two new offices, one in each location, next August.
In Byron, the office will be located inside the former Byron Public Library at 109 North Franklin Street. The group bought the building on December 17, 2012. Although there won't be any major changes to the exterior of the building, about 7,000 square feet of the interior will be renovated beginning in January. The office, which will be home to Dr. Rachel Myers, has an opening date goal of August 1. The group hopes to expand to three physicians in that location in the future.
In Rockton, the office will be inside a commercial complex that will be located at 4686 East Rockton Road. Construction on the building will begin early next year and have an opening date goal of August 1. About 5,000 square feet of space will be used for the clinic and is designed to accommodate three physicians, but will initially be staffed by just one.
"We extend our geographic reach to new populations with the same commitment to service, quality, and safety offered in our Rockford practices," Vice President OSF Medical Group North Region, Dr. Jeffry Tillery, said. "We look forward to our new partnerships and the impact they bring to improve the health of these and surrounding communities."
