Mercy Well Child Pediatrics Completion


With its bright colors and tropical ocean theme, the communities in Urbana and Champaign counties and Community Mercy Health Partners have much to celebrate with the opening of the Mercy Well Child Pediatrics in late January. Originally designed as a stand-alone facility adjacent to Mercy Memorial Hospital, just before construction began the clinic’s planned site was relocated to a former grocery store in a shopping center that sits on the southeast edge of downtown Urbana.

Changing locations required drawing revisions, structural changes and lease negotiations that delayed the start of the project by more than two months, but the completion date still had to be met due to funding requirements. Community Mercy Health Partners, App Architecture and Kapp Construction worked closely together to fast-track the project and compress the schedule, successfully completing the renovation on time and under budget.
