Great River Health Systems plans ground breaking ceremony for Keokuk clinic

Nov 09, 2017

WEST BURLINGTON — A public ground breaking ceremony for Great River Health Systems’ new clinic in Keokuk wll be Tuesday, Nov. 21, at noon. The 19,000-square-foot facility will be built in the 3200 block of Main St., between Hampton Inn and Sonic. Estimated to cost $6.85 million, the clinic is expected to open in late 2018.

The health system purchased The Keokuk Clinic Jan. 1, 2012. It has grown from a practice with three internal medicine physicians to 10 health care providers. The new building will be four times larger than the existing clinic at 1603 Morgan St.

“First and foremost, we’re building a new clinic to increase access to primary-care services for people in southeast Iowa — specifically the Keokuk area,” said Mark Richardson, president and CEO. “It’s part of our strategy to expand the health system’s regionalism, which includes bringing specialty care to areas that don’t have these services.

In nearly six years, Great River Health Systems has added cardiology, podiatry, rheumatology, sports medicine and women’s health to the clinic’s services. With a larger building, they hope to expand these specialties even further.

The new one-story clinic will resemble Great River Health Systems’ buildings on its main campus in West Burlington. Carl A. Nelson and Company is the general contractor.
