FHN To Build New Family Healthcare Center In Jo Daviess County

FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — FHN is pleased to announce the plan for a new Family Healthcare Center to be built in Stockton, Illinois. The new facility, which will be located just off of Illinois Route 20 and South Park Road, north of Stockton High School, will replace the current FHN Family Healthcare Center at 725 North Pearl Street. Construction is expected to begin this fall with opening anticipated in early to midyear 2021.

“This investment is a significant expression of our commitment to the people of Jo Daviess County,” said FHN President and CEO Mark Gridley. “It will be much larger than our current office in Stockton, and incorporate more state-of-the-art technology, including telehealth and digital x-ray capability.” The office will be large enough to accommodate more specialty service appointments and will provide more convenient access for all patients and visitors. In-person behavioral health services will also be a key offering on-site.

“This new clinic will be a great addition to the Village of Stockton,” said Village President Rodney Brandt. “We’re happy that FHN has had a presence here for many years and very pleased that this new facility will enhance healthcare services available in Stockton as well as the surrounding area.”

Michael McFadden, MD, who currently serves patients in FHN’s existing Stockton office, said, “I look forward to being able to offer area residents additional services close to home. The location and hours will also provide added convenience for patients’ busy schedules.”

Residents of northwest Illinois can stay current on the new project with updates on construction which will be posted frequently on FHN’s website and Facebook page.
