Carle development will include Christie building

CHAMPAIGN — Christie Clinic will have a medical office building of its own on the new Carle at the Fields development at Curtis Road and Interstate 57.

Details were announced at a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday for a pair of medical office buildings flanking the outpatient surgery center jointly owned by the Carle health system and Christie Clinic.

Several Carle medical providers will occupy one of the buildings and Christie will lease the other for several of its specialties, according to the two medical systems.

The 70,000-square-foot Christie building will house allergy, foot and ankle surgery, gastroenterology, general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical therapy, sports medicine, urology, ear, nose and throat and audiology and hearing aid services.

Carle' 80,000-square-foot medical office building will house plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, optometry, optical, ophthalmology and vitreous retinal services, ear nose and throat and audiology and hearing aid services.

The Champaign SurgiCenter will be moving to the new campus off Staley Road from its current location on Mattis Avenue.

The new 47,000-square-foot surgery center at Curtis and Staley roads will feature larger operating rooms, prep and recovery space, and more room for surgical teams, according to Carle and Christie.

All three buildings are set to be completed in 2019.

The correct spelling would be 'Ophthalmology'
