Greater Elgin Family Care Center (GEFCC) is excited to share that the renovation for our Seneca Health Center’s lower level has officially started! We are so pleased to begin 2021 with a new project that will provide a refreshing new space where GEFCC can continue to provide excellent care to patients.
Seneca Health Center was first opened in January of 2007, offering pediatric care, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, WIC, Family Case Management, and laboratory services. Then, in 2008, Seneca Health Center began offering pediatric dental care and became known as Seneca Health Center and Dental Clinic, later expanding by offering adult dentistry.
You may remember that a couple of years ago, in 2017, GEFCC embarked on a project to expand Seneca Health Center and Dental Clinic, which resulted in new space in the Upper Level for our obstetrics and gynecology practice, as well as additional medical exam rooms and dental operatories. – Now, only 3 years later, GEFCC has begun renovating the Lower Level of Seneca Health Center, which houses pediatrics, WIC, Family Case Management, a full-service laboratory and other staff offices and administrative areas.
The waiting room, reception area, exam rooms, provider charting area, and the in-house lab located in the Lower Level of Seneca Health Center will all go under renovation. The result: a freshly transformed state-of-the-art Health Center that will enable GEFCC to continue our commitment to provide patients with the exceptional quality of care that they deserve. The Health Center will continue to remain open and serve the community uninterrupted.
December 21st, 2020 marks the beginning of phase 1, which will focus on the reception area, laboratory, and provider charting area. Phase 2 will begin in February 2021, followed by phase 3, during which the exam rooms will be demolished and renovated. Lastly, phase 4 will focus on the waiting area and corridors, and is expected to finish in late April of 2021. You may notice that as each phase begins and ends, rooms and staff will be moved to ensure that our patients continue to be seen with as little disruption as possible.
