Built in 1954, Taylorville Memorial Hospital has changed dramatically, most recently with the opening of the outpatient services center in early 2011.
A three-phase construction plan began with a 42,000- square-foot, two-story medical office building completed in the fall of 2009. The new facility, Springfield Clinic Taylorville, has been completely leased by Springfield Clinic. The physicians, who had previously been at three different locations in the community, are now consolidated into one building. Housed in the new facility are a full-time medical team of eight physicians, six mid-level providers and more than 60 staff members. Additionally, the facility hosts more than 20 Springfield-based specialists who see patients locally as part of Springfield Clinic’s Specialty Outreach Program.
Phase two of TMH’s building project, the construction of the outpatient services center, began in October 2009 and opened in early 2011. The 32,000-square-foot facility is home to emergency, radiology and surgery departments.
The single-story center is designed for outpatients, who account for more than 70 percent of the services provided by Taylorville Memorial Hospital. The center includes three spacious new operating rooms equipped with cutting-edge technology as well as a state-of-the-art CT scanner and a high field strength MRI scanner.
The outpatient services center offers closer parking with no elevators, and the design emphasizes patient privacy. Visitors can quickly reach the new center for tests like mammograms and CT scans as well as outpatient surgery thanks in part to the third phase of the project: a direct connection between the hospital and Route 29.
The new road provides quick access and diverts traffic away from the schools and surrounding residential areas. At least 70 percent of traffic is expected to be directed away from those areas, alleviating congestion and improving safety to patients, neighborhood residents and children. It also improves ambulance access to the hospital.
