Peru hospital campus to grow again

Jeff Dankert
NewsTribune Reporter

Illinois Valley Community Hospital, Peru plans to build a nearby outpatient medical building.

The building, about 2,500 square feet, will be on vacant property the hospital owns on the northwest corner of Sixth and Plum streets, just north of the hospital, according to minutes from a recent Peru plan commission and zoning board of appeals meeting.

On Wednesday Peru City Council approved a zoning amendment and variances as recommended by the board and commission.

Parking already exists on an adjacent lot to the west. The facility would be staffed by hospital physicians and is expected to treat 300 to 500 patients per year for outpatient services.

The hospital likely would add three new staff members for the new facility. It would most likely be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, according to Tommy Hobbs, hospital chief executive officer.
