Construction starts on a new OSF Healthcare facility

Back in July, Wee Tee Golf Center in Peoria closed its doors in order for a new organization to take its place.

OSF Healthcare is building a transitional facility for children with complex medical needs.

So far in Illinois, these facilities can only be found in the Chicagoland area.

Saving time and money, OSF Healthcare is happy to soon be able to provide these services in Central Illinois.

Earlier Wednesday, construction workers began clearing the area.

"We're just getting started with some site demolition this week," says Adam Gibson, project manager at OSF Healthcare. "We're moving some trees and then we're going to start stripping the building pad and getting the site ready for the building foundation."

Gibson hopes to have the site work completed within the next few months.
