SUGAR GROVE – The local health care options for those living in and around Sugar Grove will expand later this year.
In spring, Cadence, the health care system that operates Delnor Hospital in Geneva and Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, will open doctor offices on Sugar Grove’s north side.
Cadence purchased a building in the 400 block of Division Drive, said Cadence spokesman Christopher King.
Kane County property records indicate Cadence purchased the site between Park Avenue and Galena Boulevard, west of Route 47, in October for $498,000.
He said the facility will be renovated and opened in the spring as physician offices. The medical professionals that will staff the facility will focus on primary care and physical therapy, King said.
Cadence has not identified the doctors and other medical personnel that will staff the facility but intends to have staffing complete before the offices open.
King said the medical practices that open in Sugar Grove will be affiliated with the Cadence group, but will not operate as immediate care or convenient care facilities.
Sessions with doctors or other practitioners will be by appointment only, he said.
King noted that the opening of the facility will mark the first time Cadence has opened medical offices in Sugar Grove.
The opening also will represent the second medical facility to open in Sugar Grove this year.
Rush-Copley is completing work on converting a storefront in a strip retail center along Route 47 into a convenient care walk-in medical clinic. That clinic would be similar to clinics Rush-Copley operates in Yorkville and Aurora.
Rush-Copley had indicated it intends to open the clinic in February.
The opening of the Rush-Copley clinic and Cadence physicians’ offices have been welcomed by village officials, including Village President Sean Michels, who believes the openings will enhance quality of life for residents of Sugar Grove by allowing them to access medical care without driving to Aurora, Geneva or Yorkville.
