PROJECT: Memorial Urbana Medical Center
CLIENT: Memorial Health
“Memorial Health is thrilled to be celebrating with the Champaign County community as we open the doors to our Urbana Medical Center,” explains Chip Hubbs, President and CEO of Memorial Health. “Our continued investment in current and future patients of the region is connected to our goal to provide increased access to local, stable primary healthcare. Pairing high technology and best practices with our expert clinical teams, it is exciting to be investing at even greater levels.”
Memorial Health currently employs 21 staff members within the Memorial Primary Care │ Urbana office. The new facility will create 12 permanent local jobs, for an overall impact of 33 jobs in the Champaign County community. In addition, the building construction project created approximately 50 local construction jobs.
“Memorial Health’s new facility will offer our community even more options to choose expert medical specialists for their health care needs, together with a state-of-the art urgent care center for our citizens,” stated Urbana Mayor Bill Bean. “Memorial’s decision to further expand in Champaign County is greatly appreciated, as is the organization’s continual dedication to community support and volunteerism. I am looking forward to many years of excellent medical services provided by their team.”
Memorial will be leasing the facility from developer and building owner Hplex Solutions.
