The Egyptian Health Department broke ground last week on its new Integrated Hub (iHub) building, just off the main Egyptian Health Department Campus on U.S. 45 N.
The iHub is planned to be an innovative space that will provide a shared office for the Integrated Care for Adults (InCA) and Integrated Care for Kids (Village InCK) teams. Both teams will focus efforts on issues driving health disparities and addressing equity challenges in the community.
"We are excited and grateful to the State of Illinois and Senator (Dale) Fowler to have this project fully funded and are committed to provide quality care coordination for kids and adults in our community through partnerships," said Angie Hampton, CEO of Egyptian Health Department.
InCA is a health care transformation collaborative through the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. The iHub is being funded jointly by that agency through the Healthcare Transformation Collaboratives program and a grant Sen. Fowler secured through the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
Architechniques Limited and HE Mitchell Construction will provide oversight of the project.
