On Monday, Oct. 29, Hannibal Clinic broke ground for a new medical office facility in Monroe City. This is the first step in a project to build a new clinic and demolish the current Hannibal Clinic Monroe City facility. A parking lot for the new clinic will occupy the space in which the current clinic sits.


The new facility will be approximately 6,000 square feet, and offer expanded office space, additional exam rooms, and updated radiology and lab suites, including new X-ray technology.


The project is expected to be complete by June 2019.


“With expanded space and new technology, our dedicated team of physicians and staff will continue to provide the excellent care you know and trust,” said Maureen Kahn, RN, MHA, MSN, President/Chief Executive Officer, Blessing Health System. Hannibal Clinic is a member of Blessing Health System.


“The new facility will allow us the opportunity to expand services, including new imaging technology. We are proud to bring a new medical office building to the residents of Monroe City,” she concluded.


“Hannibal Clinic has been privileged to provide healthcare to the residents of Monroe City for many years,” said Randy Jobe, Practice Administrator, Hannibal Clinic. “This project helps us ensure Monroe City residents have the healthcare they need, in a facility that meets their needs, for years to come. We have a responsibility to make investments to improve the health of our communities and we believe this new facility will do that.”


During the building process there will be no interruption to patient care. Office hours will continue as usual. Dr. Rodney Yager, Family Medicine Physician, Dr. Stephen Halpin, Internal Medicine Physician, and Dr. Shelly Friedersdorf, Podiatrist, all care for patients in Monroe City and will continue to provide care to their patients.
