DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA)–City employees and their families are getting their own health clinic.
In Tuesday’s city council meeting, councilmembers voted to renovate the upper floor of the library into a clinic. It will be run by Activate healthcare, and will offer primary care, some preventative care and pharmacy services to all of Decatur’s city employees. Officials say it’ll save the city $250,000 every year.
“We’re really thrilled about the downtown location of this clinic,” City Councilman David Horn said. “We think the upper level of the library is a great central location that’s easy to access for our employees.”
City leaders say they expect the clinic to be open by the end of 2021.
