Today, Springfield Clinic pediatrics welcomes their first patients to our new state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot pediatrics building focused on providing a unique child-focused patient experience. The new facility is located at 3501 Old Jacksonville Road in Springfield, Illinois.
“This new facility exists for our patients and their families,” says Dr. Purvi Bhandari, chair of Springfield Clinic Pediatrics. “We are so excited to finally welcome all of our patients to this new modern facility today and for years to come.”
Springfield Clinic Pediatrics will offer general pediatrics, pediatric dermatology, our Pediatric Healthy Lifestyle Center as well as supportive services, including on-site lab and radiology, lactation consultation and mental health therapy. The location includes 60 brightly colored exam rooms and a new on-site café, Sprouts. The facility also incorporates car-free pedestrian routes to access the building from the parking lot.
“Everything in this building was put in place to create a low-anxiety, patient-friendly experience for each child and parent,” says Tom Fitch, Vice President of Facilities, Real Estate and Construction. “We look forward to welcoming families from across the region to this new innovative space.”
