June 28, 2013 - Dozens of local dignitaries, community leaders, patients and well-wishers helped to celebrate the grand opening of the Vista Physician Group’s new practice office in Zion in an event held Thursday evening, June 27. The office is located at 2723 Sheridan Rd., Suite C, and is the newest commercial tenant in the Best Western Inn & Suites Hotel in downtown Zion.
Six Vista Physician Group physicians and one nurse practitioner are now seeing patients in the Zion office. Four of the doctors are in family practice – Dr. Daisy Andaleon, Dr. Anita Bhardwaj, Dr. Pedro Palu-ay and Dr. Anuvesha Samala – and are joined by Dr. Wilfredo Granada, internal medicine, and Dr. Jamil Abdur-Rahman, OB/GYN.
“We’re very excited to be in this beautiful new hotel and in such a great location,” said Barbara Martin, president and chief executive officer of Vista Health System. “This really is going to be a cornerstone for revitalizing downtown Zion, and we’re happy to be part of it. We now have several outstanding doctors into one large office to serve you.”
Earlier in June, Vista Physician Group opened a new practice office in North Chicago in the new Grant Place commercial building at 1801 N. Sheridan Rd., while last fall an office was opened in the new Vista Medical Office Building on the Vista Lindenhurst campus.
“Plus, we have offices in Waukegan, Gurnee, Grayslake, Round Lake, Round Lake Beach, Vernon Hills and Antioch. So no matter where you live in Lake County, our VPG doctors have you covered,” Ms. Martin told the crowd.
Also addressing the audience was Zion Township Supervisor Cheri Neal who added her enthusiastic support for the new office since it provides much-needed available health care services to residents of Zion and the surrounding communities. Delivering the opening prayer was Pastor Claude White from the Grace of God Baptist Church in Zion.
Vista Physician Group includes 37 physicians in family medicine and a wide variety of specialties and operates practice offices throughout Lake County in Antioch, Grayslake, Gurnee, Lake Villa, Lindenhurst, North Chicago, Round Lake, Round Lake Beach and Zion. VPG physicians also see patients at Vista Medical Center East and Vista Medical Center West, both in Waukegan.
