ROSCOE – Representatives from Beloit Health Systems, area municipalities and NorthPointe Health and Wellness, 5605 E. Rockton Road, Roscoe, gathered on Wednesday, April 6, to break ground for a nearly 31,000 surgical center addition.

Tim McKevett, President and CEO of Beloit Health Systems said it has taken three years of planning to make it a reality. The $15 million expansion will include two operating rooms and two procedure rooms.

Rockton Village President Dale Adams said the addition will increase attraction to the area.

“NorthPointe was a vision 12 years ago and has now become a reality,” Roscoe Village Board President Dave Krienke added. “Thanks for allowing us to be part of the process.”

The surgical center is expected to be completed by the end of the year, and begin seeing patients in early 2017.

According to a press release, the addition will add 18,772 sq. ft. on the first floor and shell space on the second floor of 12,157 square feet. The new space will include two operating rooms, two procedure rooms, and 14 pre and post-surgery patient care rooms. The new surgery center, expected to be complete in early 2017, will create 24 full-time equivalent jobs to staff the new facility.

NorthPointe, located on 122 acres of rolling prairie near the corners of Rockton and Willowbrook Roads in Roscoe, Ill, is the first comprehensive health campus of its kind. NorthPointe was specifically designed to meet the rapidly growing healthcare needs of individuals and families in the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area.

During its more than eight years of operation, NorthPointe has added needed services and increased the number of patients seeking care. Currently, NorthPointe Clinic has more than 30 physicians on staff providing primary and specialty care.

The center’s board certified emergency medicine physicians provide after-hours care from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily in Immediate Care. In addition, NorthPointe also offers comprehensive diagnostic medical imaging.

NorthPointe Wellness is the only medically integrated health and fitness center in the area with more than 100 pieces of state-of-the-art fitness equipment, a seven-lap pool, the most group exercise classes in the area, and more.
