There are no construction-related service disruptions at this time. Please watch this space for updates as construction continues.
In October 2017, a $30.5 million renovation was announced for OSF HealthCare Center for Health – Streator as a key element of OSF HealthCare’s overall plan to promote health and wellness in the Streator community.
Through research and groundwork, OSF HealthCare was able to enter the next phase of building a healthier community, including studying efforts in similar regions, surveying residents about the status of their health needs and collaborating with wellness-related organizations.
Both exterior and interior renovations are in the beginning phases for the Spring Street facility. These include improvements to OSF specialty clinics, rehabilitation, primary care and diagnostic imaging departments. A new entrance and lobby, with upgrades to registration and the addition of a tech bar for computer users, are also planned.
OSF HealthCare plans to utilize three of the building’s six available floors. The city and OSF plan to continue working together to repurpose the unused portions of the hospital. If these efforts prove successful, it would be the first time the six-story building would be fully utilized and occupied in more than 10 years.
To advance its partnership with local residents and organizations, OSF HealthCare is also adding community education and meeting rooms.
Demolition of the former wing known as St. Francis Hall has already been completed. Additional work on OSF Center for Health – Streator began in January and will be done in phases. Project completion is scheduled for summer 2019.
