SYCAMORE – Center for Family Health is reopening after temporarily closing Wednesday, according to a news release. 

The center, 165 E. Plank Road, Sycamore, will open Dec. 18 and provide comprehensive pediatric and family medicine care with a focus on the publicly insured, uninsured and underinsured residents. 

Appointments may be made by calling 815-363-9900. 

A second location previously run by KishHealth System at the DeKalb County Health Department at 2550 N. Annie Glidden Road will open Jan. 2. 

Center for Family Health was temporarily closed by KishHealth System and reopened when federal funding was received by Greater Elgin Family Care Center from the Bureau of Primary Health Care to support both locations. GEFCC will run each location. 

The center will be open six days a week, beginning at 8 a.m. each day with evening appointments Monday through Thursday until 7:30 p.m. Patients also can walk-in for care at either locations, and same-day appointments are available for existing patients. 

Quest Diagnostics will offer a full service laboratory for the center. Obstetric care, ultrasounds, Affordable Care Act insurance enrollment and WIC services by the Health Department are all in the planning stages and will be offered early next year. 

For information, call 815-363-9900 or visit www.gefcc.org.
