Carle opens clinic in Milford

MILFORD — The Milford Medical Clinic, Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center’s $1 million project, officially opened Thursday at 322 N. Chicago St.

“Patients in the area have had to travel to access comprehensive health services,” said Harry Brockus, CEO of Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center. “Everyone deserves access to this high quality care close to home and that is why we’ve brought our services to Milford.”

From it’s inception two years ago, prior to the integration with Carle, Hoopeston Regional Health Center saw a need to provide quality health care to the residents of Milford and surrounding communities.

The completion of the 3,152 square foot Milford Medical Clinic this past fall, following integration with Carle, was a step to providing that quality care in Milford without the need to travel to Hoopeston or other facilities for care.

Connie Catron, nurse practitioner, began seeing patients last December following completion of the clinic.

The clinic offers onsite lab, general radiology services and medical records available electronically from Milford, Hoopeston, Urbana or any Carle location. According to Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center, the system helps track age-appropriate screenings, allergies and helps safeguard against drug interactions. Carle added that patients will soon be able to access their own medical record information via the MyCarle patient portal.

Catron, the daughter of David and Ethel Lucht of Milford and a 1990 graduate of Milford Township High School, is the full-time resident for the Clinic. Dr. William McCarthey, M.D., will be the part-time resident.

“In a small community, people take care of each other, and it is nice to have the opportunity to give back to the community that supported me while I was growing up here,” Catron said. “I am proud to call Milford home and honored to serve the healthcare needs of my hometown.”
