Saint Anthony Hospital Reopens Kedzie Avenue clinic

Kedzie AfterSaint Anthony Hospital, a 151-bed community hospital, announced last week the reopening of a new remodeled Kedzie Avenue clinic and the expansion of its services.

The Kedzie Clinic will be the first of several to follow the hospital’s new model for outpatient clinics, which features an updated and more modern design.

“Quality health care is something every community deserves, and we are pleased to unveil the first of several clinics which raise the standard of care for our community members through the delivery of modern, top-class services in the specialty areas they’ve told us are needed and important,” said Guy A. Medaglia, president and chief executive officer of Saint Anthony Hospital.

The Kedzie Clinic will continue offering family practice and internal medicine. In addition, it will also offer occupational health, podiatry, radiology, rehabilitation, speech therapy and immediate care services.

“Health care is a pillar of any community upon which so many areas of its success hinge,” said Alderman Edward A. Burke. “We’re pleased to see Saint Anthony Hospital investing in improving care and that Brighton Park could be the first to benefit from its new outpatient clinic model.”

In addition to outpatient health clinic, Anthony Hospital is working on the development of Focal Point, a financially self-sustaining community campus, which will deliver a combination of retail, wellness, education, arts and recreation elements, customized to meet the needs of its community.

“We understand that providing for the health of the community is much broader than traditional health care, which is why we want to be part of a larger solution,” said Medaglia. “Focal Point will serve as a center of health care for the community by housing our hospital and providing access to other important services that contribute to overall wellness—including education, arts and recreation programs—while our clinics will continue to provide touch-points for specialized health services and more throughout the region.”

The plan for the complex is to be built at 31st and Kedzie in the Southwest side of the Chicago and to open in 2017. More information on Focal Point can be found at www.FocalPointChicago.org.
