HSHS Medical Group and Prairie Cardiovascular this week opened a new clinic in Mattoon.
HSHS C-E-O Melinda Clark says it's the first time the 2 entities have created a joint clinic together. Clark added Mattoon was an opportunity to lessen the drive for their patients.
Partnering with nearby HSHS St. Anthony's Hospital in Effingham, the new clinic will provide advanced imaging.
Clark says a walk-in clinic is part of the new Mattoon location.
Most people using walk-in clinics at their other locations, don't have a primary care physician.
The new combined HSHS Medical Group and Prairie Cardiovascular clinic is at 101 Coles Centre Parkway in Mattoon.
