A blessing was offered by Msgr. David Lantz from St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylorville. The Taylorville Chamber of Commerce led a ribbon cutting.
“The Del Valle family has a 60-year legacy of providing compassionate health care in the Taylorville community. We are excited to welcome Dr. Rick back to care for patients in his hometown again,” said Clark. “This new location is nearly 14,000 square feet – large enough to accommodate primary care, onsite lab and imaging services, and a partnership with Prairie Cardiovascular. We are proud to increase access to high-quality, patient-first care in communities like Taylorville.”
“Prairie has a legacy of providing care to our patients locally. We are excited to return to Taylorville and offer exceptional cardiovascular care to the community,” said Dr. Dukipatti.
