ALGONQUIN – OrthoIllinois is looking to expand its services by moving its facility from Crystal Lake to Algonquin, OrthoIllinois CEO Don Schreiner said.  

On Feb. 7, the Algonquin Village Board is expected to approve plans for a 26,490-square-foot orthopedic clinic that would be built in the vacant lot south of the Advocate Sherman Immediate Care Center on Randall Road, according to village documents.

“We think we’ll be able to better serve the Elgin market, the Algonquin market and still be able to take care of our Crystal Lake, Woodstock and Huntley [clients],” Schreiner said. 

OrthoIllinois acquired the Crystal Lake clinic about two and a half years ago, Schreiner said, and also has an office in Huntley.

Schreiner said the business has tentative plans to hold some operations in those facilities after the new one is built, but its main branch would be in Algonquin.

There are about 35 employees in Crystal Lake and Huntley, and Schreiner said the business will expand to about 100 people with the Algonquin facility. 

OrthoIllinois offers a variety of musculoskeletal services and specializes in joints, sports medicine and hands at its Crystal Lake office, Schreiner said. In Algonquin, they hope to add pediatric services, spine services, trauma care, an urgent care clinic and MRI services, he said. 

“It will be able to offer state-of-the-art technologies and more sub-specialties that aren’t available in the area,” Schreiner said. “… For the patient, it’s nice because its a one-stop approach.”

The project is expected to cost about $9 million, Schreiner said, and the building could be finished by this spring if plans are approved. 

“It provides a medical opportunity for our residents that we don’t currently have,” Algonquin Village President John Schmitt said of the clinic. “This is a good thing in an area that is already in medical use, so it’s very appropriate.”
