Troy ExpressCare will further the goal of Anderson Hospital to bring health care more directly to the community it serves.
The Korte Company has begun construction of the project at the intersection of U.S. Route 40 and Scott-Troy Road. The seven-month build should be completed for opening in spring 2019, said Keith Page, president and CEO of Anderson Hospital.
“We are growing with our communities. Patients are looking for accessible and convenient health-care options, and our ExpressCare network does just that,” Page said. “Adding an ExpressCare in Troy brings another option for care.”
The $4.25 million project — of which $2.7 million is for construction — will be a total 7,135 square feet. The site is also large enough to provide additional facilities/services in the future.
“We pursued this site because we love the Route 40 and Scott-Troy Road location for residential areas of Troy, Marine, St. Jacob, Highland and even north O’Fallon,” Page said.
In addition to ExpressCare, the hospital will have a primary care physician suite in the building to increase primary care physician coverage in the area, he said.
Anderson appreciates that the city of Troy has been helpful in developing the plans for this site, he said.
Troy ExpressCare will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and equipped to treat a wide variety of minor illnesses and injuries.
Among these are:
- Ailments such as sniffles, sneezes
- Lacerations (cuts) not involving the
face, joints or tendons
- Back pain
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Insect bites
- Sore throats
- Urinary tract infection symptoms
- Sprains, strains and bumps
Radiology and Quest Lab Draw Services will be available on site for lab work and X-rays.
