SPRINGFIELD, Missouri – Mercy’s new multi-specialty clinic opened Monday in the historic Frisco Building in east Springfield.

In a press release, Mercy explains that the new clinic at 3253 E. Chestnut Expy. will house two specialties – therapy services and occupational medicine – and will also offer primary care, x-ray services, laboratory services and a designated area for specialty care such as mental health and cardiology.

“This has been our dream project for about 10 years,” said Charlene Rioux, vice president of primary care at Mercy Southwest Missouri. “Among our patients who are 65 and older and those who work in physically demanding jobs like manufacturing and construction, we see a lot of falls and injuries to the back, shoulders and knees. We spent nearly a decade looking for a building where we could bring together all of the specialties that care for these patients and injuries, and the Frisco building is the perfect place to do it.”

The new clinic is 22,000 square feet and cost $6.5 million. The clinic will provide same-day primary care Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will accept patients of all ages. In the coming months, the clinic staff will also be expanded to include five general practitioners and four advanced practice specialists.

“Because there are so many employers and residents on this side of town, this clinic allows us to meet our patients where they live and work,” said John Myers, president of Mercy Springfield Communities. “Any time we can do that, we consider it a success.”

Mercy expects the new clinic in the Frisco Building to treat 15,000 patients annually.
