Fort Madison Community Hospital and Blessing Health System (Quincy, Ill.) announced late Friday afternoon that they are closing the Keokuk Medical Center. The facility along Main Street in downtown Keokuk was open for about 2 ½ years.
Great River Health Systems has announced plans to build a new urgent care clinic in Keokuk. The West Burlington-based health care provider said the new nearly $7 million facility will help it address a growing number of patients.
Matt Mullins admits his goal was to open the new Keokuk Medical Center months ago. But he said in no way does that diminish his excitement for the new facility, especially after seeing so many people attend the Dec. 8 open house.
