Mercy will be building a new 13,000 square foot facility on Republic Road in Springfield that will replace the current facility located on the adjoining property.
The new clinic will allow space for 10 providers and a full-service laboratory so that patients will be able to access more services at the location.
“We know we need to be ready where and when our patients need us,” Dr. Jennifer McNay, Mercy internal medicine doctor and vice president of primary care, stated in a press release. “By expanding where our patients live and work, hopefully everyone will feel our presence when they need our services – whether that’s for routine preventative care, or sick, complex needs.”
When it opens in 2019, it will be the first newly built primary care clinic in Springfield in about 20 years.
