Graham Medical Group's New Addition

10/28/2016

Graham is overjoyed to see the 35,700 square foot addition, located at 180 S. Main St. in Canton, open for our community. Healthcare services offered in this area include, a new Convenient Care Clinic, Outpatient Rehabilitation Services: Physical, Speech & Occupational Therapies, Warm Water Therapy Pool, Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehab Center, Illinois Cancer Care, and three additional physician “pods.”

Over 250 people attended the Business After Hours which was held on Thursday evening. Presentations included the Graham Foundation donating an AED (automated external defibrillator) to the Cardiopulmonary Rehab Department; Jarrod Davis, Graham’s Dietary Director, receiving an award; and a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion and opening of this new addition. Tours of the new addition were given, a variety of hors d’oeuvres and beverages were served, and the attendees received several Graham “goodies.” Door prize drawings were held for Graham Health System apparel, and the lucky winners were: Cindy Hall, Vickie Keets, Verne Liddle, Karrisa Tourtillott and Brian Yontz.

Graham Medical Group’s newest addition provides an entrance into the north side of their building that takes you directly into the Convenient Care Clinic., which not only has a new space, but expanded hours as well, to better serve their patients’ needs. Convenient Care hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 8:30 a.m.to 3:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 

After being housed in the basement at Graham Hospital for many years, the Rehabilitation Services (Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapies) staff could not be more delighted to be surrounded by windows, illuminating their patient care area. Along with the new space, comes a new way of providing therapy to those who might benefit – Aquatic Therapy.

The Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation staff and patients alike are very excited about their new space. “We have always wanted a walking track for our patients, and today, that is a reality, and is being accompanied by brand new, top-of-the-line exercise equipment,” remarked Andy French, Director of Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

President & CEO of Graham Health System, Bob Senneff, profoundly expressed, “Of all the areas that occupy our newest GMG Addition, the new Illinois Cancer Care suite is the one I’m most proud of. For those folks dealing with this horrific disease we call cancer, our ability to serve them in this state-of-the-art facility is just so rewarding. The ease of access to the suite - via a convenient new parking lot, valet parking, a dedicated elevator, and a warm, inviting family lobby, a new open treatment area with natural sunlight on 3 sides, are all stark differences from the ‘old suite’ housed on the third floor of Graham Hospital.

Additional providers and services, most relocating from the Ground Floor at Graham Hospital, include: Illinois Neurological Institute (INI); Illinois Lung Institute (ILI); Institute of Physical Medicine & Rehab (IPMR); Rheumatology (Dr. Mark Getz); and, Urology (Dr. Alan DeBord) are now located on the Second Floor at GMG. Dr. Jimmie Smith (Internal Medicine), a Graham provider since 1993, has been seeing patients on the third floor at Graham Hospital, is now located at Graham Medical Group in Pod 3C.
