PERU — The modular structure that will be the home of the new MRI unit at Illinois Valley Community Hospital has been lifted into place.

The 40-ton addition to the hospital’s diagnostic imaging department was brought to Peru on an 80-foot tractor-trailer truck and then hoisted by crane onto a concrete pad adjoining the outside wall to the department.

The new addition to the main IVCH building will house a new magnetic resonance imaging unit.
