FAIRBURY – The Fairbury Clinic will join Jefferson Community Health Center as of July 1.
The JCHC board of directors and the Fairbury Clinic physicians have been discussing possibilities for integration for more than a year. Both groups signed a purchase agreement this week.
“JCHC has worked very closely with the Fairbury Clinic for many years, and looks forward to continuing to work together be our community’s most trusted partner in health care,” said Chad Jurgens, JCHC CEO.
As a part of the agreement, the physicians will join the team of employees at Jefferson Community Health Center. Fairbury Clinic employees will also be offered employment with Jefferson Community Health Center.
“While there are many details to be finalized, it is the intention of Jefferson Community Health Center and the Fairbury Clinic physicians to continue to provide exceptional health care for our area residents and an even better patient experience. We anticipate this transition to be seamless for patients,” Jurgens said. “We would like to thank our area residents for their continued support of health care close to home.”More
