ROCK FALLS – CGH Medical Center plans to build a
$3.2 million clinic at 1315 Dixon Ave. replace the smaller clinic at 100 W. First St.

According to CGH board minutes:

The 2.8-acre site, bought for about $150,000, is just east of Rastede Dental Clinic and across the street from nearby East Coloma-Nelson School.

A groundbreaking will be held at noon March 7; the 6,500- to 7,500-square-foot clinic, which cost about $200,000 to design, is set to open in January with four providers.

The lease on the current building, where pediatrics and family medicine services are offered, is up in the summer.

The hospital is owned by the city of Sterling; its board approved the construction at its October meeting, and a sign announcing the new clinic went up at the site a little more than a week ago.

CGH has “kind of outgrown” the current building and wants “to add a couple more specialties,” Mayor Bill Wescott said at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, adding that officials haven’t sought any tax or other incentives.

There are 16 CGH clinics throughout the Sauk Valley, in Sterling, Rock Falls, Dixon, Morrison, Tampico, Prophetstown, Polo, Mount Carroll, Milledgeville, and Walnut.
