The new Riley Family Physicians clinic will be hosting an open house from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, September 26 to show the community this soon-to-open comprehensive medical clinic. The Mayor and City Council of Riley will hold a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. and there will be refreshments available. The public is invited to come see the new medical facility.
“We are excited this day has arrived,” said Austin Gillard, CEO of Clay County Medical Center. “Building a new comprehensive medical clinic in Riley started as an idea three years ago. It has now become a reality, and we would like to thank the community for their support.”
Under construction since spring at 701 Schurle Way (Just west of Dollar General) in Riley, the new clinic is set to open to patients in early October 2020. Costing almost $1 million, the clinic features six large exam rooms, a modern procedure room, an in-house lab, spacious lobby, and administrative spaces. The clinic will be staffed with a board-certified physician, Dr. Allison Haynes and a nurse practitioner, Karen Hawes. The clinic will be open Monday-Friday, with walk-in appointments available for your urgent healthcare needs.
A fundraising campaign is currently underway with a $150,000 goal towards the expenditures of equipment for the clinic. Naming opportunities of 14 rooms are available for gifts of $5,000 to $25,000. A few rooms have already received naming rights, so please contact the Clay County Hospital Foundation at (785) 630-2489 or firstname.lastname@example.org for availability. Each room sponsor will have their name or business name on the room plaque, along with their name on the donor board in the clinic lobby.
A donation of any amount helps ensure a strong financial footing for Riley Family Physicians. Donations can be made up-front, or as a pledge to be paid over three years. A donor recognition board listing all donors to the campaign of any monetary level will be installed in the clinic lobby.
