Huron’s newest clinic building is set to open just south of Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) on July 8, according to David Dick, president and CEO for HRMC.

The HRMC Physicians Clinic is a new 24,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art medical clinic designed with the patient in mind. Built for the future, the clinic can accommodate 10 HRMC physicians and also includes on-site laboratory, EKG and X-ray services.

HRMC’s newest physicians, Dr. John Robert, a board-certified general surgeon, and Dr. Jesse Van Heukelom, a board-certified pediatrician, will be the first to move into the new clinic. They will be joined by Dr. Travis Lehman, an internist, who recently completed his residency in Joplin, Missouri, and will join the HRMC medical staff in July.

“When the board of directors decided to invest in this clinic, they made a conscious decision to build for Huron’s future medical needs,” explained Dick. “While we are actively recruiting orthopedics and dermatology to move into the new clinic space, we anticipate it will be several years before the building is filled to capacity.”

HRMC has agreements with several medical students and residents to return to Huron to practice medicine over the next decade.

The HRMC Physicians Clinic will house some of these students, as well as other physicians who will be recruited to replace physicians who are anticipated to retire over the next 10 to 15 years.

A public grand opening is set for Saturday, July 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include tours, a ribbon cutting, lunch, games and activities for the kids, souvenirs and door prizes. Everyone is welcome to attend. The ribbon cutting is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. with lunch served until 1 p.m.
