IVCH's new center on the rise

Two of the three sections of the building that will house Illinois Valley Community Hospital’s Wound and Hyperbaric Center were lifted into place June 11 with the third installed June 12 on the north side of Sixth Street in Peru across from IVCH’s Emergency Department. Each of the sections weighs 47,000 pounds. The center will have three hyperbaric oxygen chambers for wound treatment and is scheduled to open in July.
