MILFORD — Iroquois Memorial Hospital officials announced Wednesday that plans are underway to break ground on the new IMH Milford Clinic, which will be triple the size of the hospital's current clinic in Milford.
A ground-breaking ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
IMH has operated a full-time medical clinic in Milford since 1986. IMH CEO Chuck Bohlmann said the new clinic will be 2,700 square feet — triple the size of the current clinic — and will feature four exam rooms, a procedure room, lab, nurse's station and a lobby. X-ray services will be added in the future.
Bohlmann said the new clinic will be large enough to accommodate several providers at a time, which means that more patients can be seen each day.
"Our goal is to better serve our customers by creating a modern new facility with their convenience and comfort in mind," said Bohlmann.
Work on the project is slated to begin in the next few weeks and should be completed early next year.
The project will be funded by the IMH Foundation.
