New $9M Urbana health center to open soon


A grand opening for a new, $9 million medical center in Urbana is scheduled for late this month, according to information from Memorial Health, based in Marysville.

Memorial Health’s new outpatient medical center will host tours and a ribbon-cutting beginning at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 26, at 1958 E. U.S. 36 in Urbana.

The new facility will house an urgent care, lab testing services, rotating physician specialists, expanded primary care and more. The roughly 30,000-square-foot center is expected to create 12 permanent jobs and retain 17 jobs in Urbana.

Memorial has had a presence in Champaign County for about five years, but the organization’s leaders have previously told the Springfield News-Sun it has outgrown its current space. Along with tours, the event will also include giveaways, a meet and greet with Star Wars characters and other activities.
