KANKAKEE, IL (November 20, 2012) – Riverside Medical Center is expanding the services it provides in Iroquois County. Starting in December, obstetrics and gynecology as well as physical therapy services will be available at Riverside Medical Center Specialty Services in Watseka. Primary care services, including immediate care, and sleep disorder services are soon to follow.

“The expansion of our services in Watseka are a direct result of the positive feedback we have received since opening our facility here last March and further illustrate our deep commitment to the area,” said Riverside President and CEO Phil Kambic.  “We are continuing to add those services which meet the healthcare needs of the region.”

Riverside Medical Group’s Obstetrician/Gynecologists Drs. Lizy Andrews and Mini Sreedevi will offer comprehensive prenatal care, annual exams and screenings in Watseka every Wednesday.  These board-certified physicians are committed to building caring relationships and providing the very best care for you and your developing baby.

In addition, Riverside’s Watseka facility will offer Physical Therapy services five days a week.  Riverside understands that having therapy close to home or work is more convenient for clients and helps ensure better short and long term successes. All services are provided by licensed therapists, many with specialty training and certificates. Physical Therapist Erica Reynolds and Physical Therapy Assistant Lacy Reeder, both area residents, recently joined the Riverside Specialty Services team.

This December, primary care providers from the Riverside Medical Group will be available for the healthcare needs of the entire family and will offer the convenience of extended hours, weekends and immediate care.  You and your family’s health needs cannot always be conveniently scheduled, and now Riverside’s Watseka campus will provide walk-in services for everything from strep throat to stitches, as well as fevers, fractures and more. 

In January, the Riverside Sleep Disorder Institute will open another sleep center in Watseka.  The new location will include two state-of-the-art sleep study suites with private spa-like bathrooms. Riverside’s registered sleep technicians, under the supervision of the sleep specialists, will be available three evenings a week to conduct sleep studies.

All of this is in addition to the services that are already available in Watseka including oncology, neurosurgery, neurology, pediatric cardiology, audiology, and lab and imaging services.

Riverside Medical Center Specialty Services in Watseka is located at 1490 East Walnut Street.  For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (815) 432-0250. For more about Riverside’s care, visit www.RiversideMC.net.
