CHICAGO (AP) — Newly-renovated clinics at a hospital on Chicago West Side that received millions in state money should open early next year.

Gov. Pat Quinn and other state officials attended a ceremonial ribbon cutting Tuesday morning at Mount Sinai Hospital. The project received $7 million from a state capital fund.

The project will relocate several Mount Sinai clinics into a renovated floor of another facility on the medical campus. The clinics had served 65,000 patient visits annually.

The Illinois Jobs Now capital plan provided the funding. It started in 2009.
