A great crowd got tours of the new SIU Family Medicine and Memorial Behavioral Health location at 303 East Bidwell across from Kroger in Taylorville on Wednesday, as an Open House was held. The 2 entities moved into the free-standing facility and opened October First, after operating inside Taylorville Memorial Hospital on a limited basis since the first of the year.
Miller Media Group radio stations WTIM and WMKR broadcast live, and visited with Doctor Jerry Kruse, Dean and Provost of the SIU School of Medicine, who said the need to serve the unserved and underserved for health care in Christian County, was why the Taylorville facility opened.
Doctor Kruse added the new free-standing location is optimal for family health care.
