Northwestern Medicine – Kishwaukee Hospital is proposing to construct a health and wellness center on property located at 626 E. Bethany Road in unincorporated DeKalb Township. However, the proposed center would be approximately 111,105 square feet in gross floor area, rather than the maximum 20,000 square feet as allowed in the BC, Business Conservation District. In order to allow the center, a Variation must be granted from the maximum gross floor area requirement. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.

Northwestern Medicine – Kishwaukee Hospital has requested such a Variation from the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance for the property located at 626 E. Bethany Road. A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, February 9, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administration Building, East Conference Room, south entrance, 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178. All interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard, as this will be the only opportunity for public input on the application. The application for Variation, Petition DK-17- 2, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Planning and Zoning Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.

  1. How about spending that money on getting some doctors that actually know something. They send too many people to other hospitals because “they don’t handle certain medical issues. Before you all rant let me explain….they don’t treat stroke victims. You will be transported elsewhere. How many senior’s do we have that live here that might have a stroke???? Many! Time is of the essence with a stroke. You don’t even have to be a senior citizen. I was 39 when I had mine. What permanent damage could have been spared if they treated strokes. Bottom line….their medical staff are a bunch of strokes.
