OAK PARK, IL – Walsh Construction joined the Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society, a member-driven health and social service organization, at a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the beginning of building renovations at 28 W. Madison Street. IWS members and community leaders gathered to celebrate the beginning of a construction project that will provide more than 13,000 square feet of space for clinical operations, community meetings and other programming services.
The construction project will add a new clinic space and six dental suites, along with exam, sterilization and treatment rooms. A fully renovated second floor will be dedicated to new office space for the organization that hosted over 40 health profession students who completed clinical rotation at the society's Children's Clinic.
