A new doctor’s office and then some is going up in Peru next to HyVee and Culver’s.  Site work is underway for St. Margaret’s Midtown Health Center.

Doctors that will have hours at the clinic will be Shawn Bailey, Alex Bernal, Damian Grivetti, Jeffrey Tanzi, and Richard Twanow, Ramon Inciong, and three-mid level practitioners.

Muntz says their plans have received approval from Peru’s design and review committee.  Next they’ll apply for a building permit.  They plan to have construction completed by late 2010 and open for business in early 2011.
