Hines to Open new Clinic in Kankakee County this Fall

August 24, 2011

Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital will be expanding the current Manteno Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) by moving to a new larger, more modern location this fall.  The new clinic will be renamed the Kankakee CBOC.  The new clinic will open October 3rd, 2011 and will be located at 581 William Latham Drive, Bourbonnais, IL  60914-2435, just 10 miles from the current location.

The Kankakee CBOC will provide three times the space, and offer new and expanded services in a modern environment with state of the art medical equipment.  All staff and providers at the Manteno CBOC will relocate to the new clinic.    A new transportation system to and from Hines will be available at the new clinic and the hospital is working with the city to make public transportation near the clinic more convenient to our Veterans.

“We are thrilled to be able to open a new clinic for our Veterans in Kankakee County,” said Sharon Helman.  “The beautiful new clinic will offer them a more modern and professional environment in which to receive our top quality healthcare.”

All services that Veterans receive now at the current clinic location in Manteno will be offered in the new location as well as: 

  • Physical Therapy
  • Geriatrics
  • Traumatic Brain Injury Services
  • Audiology
  • Expanded Mental Health Services
  • Retinal Imaging
  • MOVE! Program
  • Diabetes Group
  • My HealthEVet Learning Center
  • Women’s Health Care
  • Van Transportation to Hines for Specialty Care
  • And more specialty services to come!

All veterans and their families are invited to celebrate the opening of the Kankakee CBOC at our official Ribbon Cutting event on Thursday, November 10th at 11:00 a.m.   For more information, call the Manteno CBOC at 815-932-3823.

Thanks to all Veterans for their patience and cooperation during our move to the new clinic location.
We are proud to be able to continue to provide our top quality healthcare to America’s heroes in our new location.
