Timeline

Most Peorians – especially those who drive by it every day – might think we’ve been working on the new facility for the last three years. And that’s true. But the project actually started 14 years ago, when discussions about the expansion first began in earnest. Along the way, there were several important milestones. Here’s a short timeline, showing a few of the key developments in our mission to build the best healthcare facility in Central Illinois.
