SHILOH — Memorial Regional Health Services and others have jointly filed a Certificate of Need application with the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board to construct a three-story, 70,500-square-foot medical office building adjacent to Memorial Hospital East in Shiloh.
“Construction of a medical office building in Shiloh always has been a strategic priority for this site in order to support demand for outpatient services at Memorial Hospital East,” said Mark J. Turner, president of Memorial Regional Health Services. “Our strategic affiliation with BJC HealthCare allows us to begin this project sooner than expected.”
Turner said that physician practices currently located within Memorial Hospital East will relocate to suites in the new medical office building along with new physician practices and services.
Holland Construction Services of Swansea has been selected to build the $22 million facility on the 94-acre site.
The CON application is expected to be reviewed by the IHFSRB at its August meeting. If approved, construction will begin later this year with completion slated for fourth quarter 2017.
Memorial Regional Health Services filed for the certificate with Metro-East Services, Inc., Memorial Group, Inc. and BJC HealthCare.
Memorial Regional Health Services is a non-profit organization jointly governed by Memorial and BJC. It is the parent organization of the hospitals, medical group and Memorial Foundation. The board of directors includes equal representation from both Memorial and BJC.
