Sinnissippi New Office Open
Sinnissippi Centers’ newest office in Oregon is open and ready to serve Ogle County residents. The new facility has 6,400 square foot of new office space to serve residents of Ogle County. “Oregon is the last of our new office buildings to be built,” says Patrick Phelan, Sinnissippi Centers’ President/CEO. The new building is located at 100 Jefferson Street. It replaces the office at 125 South Fourth Street in Oregon. Ground for the new office was broken in early December, 2013.
“The new building will allow us great flexibility to provide group services and to meet the needs of both our adult and child/adolescent population,” adds Phelan. “Improved waiting rooms, reception areas, offices and other facilities will provide our clients the type of environment that is conducive to treatment and is welcoming to the public.” The new facility will have 11 offices, 2 group rooms, and a specialized play therapy room for children.
The Oregon Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting at the office on July 17th at 12:45.
“It is a definite improvement over the Fourth Street location. Space there had been at capacity for some time,” adds Phelan, We also are expecting to meet an increasing need for services due to increased coverage under the Affordable Care Act and due to other factors. The new office is the result of several years of planning and development to meet these increasing needs for services in Oregon and in the rest of Ogle County.”
For more information or questions about the ribbon cutting or open house, please contact Phyllis Berge at Sinnissippi Centers’ Dixon office at 815-2834-661.
