Open for Business: Jordan Valley Community Health Center

Posted online

Jordan Valley Community Health Center
Jordan Valley Community Health Center opened its fourth Queen City clinic Jan. 3 in a former Price Cutter grocery store. The $12 million facility was dedicated in December as the Roy Blunt Center for Family Health and Wellness, in honor of the recently retired senator. The 50,500-square-foot building at 1720 W. Grand St. incorporates two suites. One holds a procedure clinic for oral surgery and the other houses a women and children’s clinic, which offers services such as behavioral health and physical therapy. Use for remaining space at the clinic is undetermined, officials say. Branco Enterprises Inc. served as general contractor, and BRP Architects designed the project, which began in 2021. Dr. Matthew Stinson, executive vice president for the health center, said the facility employs 100, noting Rebekah Hightower manages the pediatric clinic, Leah Olson is the women’s health manager and Jessica Johns is the oral surgery nurse manager.

Great River Engineering
The coverage area for Springfield-based Great River Engineering Inc. expanded south with the Sept. 1 opening of an office in Branson at 186 S. Payne Stewart Drive, Ste. 151. Company officials declined to disclose startup costs or lease terms for the 2,700-square-foot office that handles civil engineering and land survey services, said Kelly Cooper, administrative assistant. The Branson office, which employs seven, is led by Todd Chandler, vice president of development services. Additionally, Brad Ferguson manages land surveying operations and projects for the new office. Officials say the branch was added to better serve southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Its service area is Taney and Stone counties in Missouri and Benton, Boone and Newton counties in Arkansas. The 1997-founded firm also has offices in Springfield, Kansas City, Jefferson City and St. Louis, according to its website.

A former leader with nonprofit Life360 Community Services started Hahn Adventure Co. LLC on Dec. 1. Owner Jeremy Hahn said the venture operates from the Executive Office Center at 221 E.

Its three focus areas are short-term rentals, events and experiences – such as corporate parties, birthdays and themed events – as well as outdoor adventures, including float trips and camping. Including the purchase of three short-term rental properties, startup costs were around $500,000, Hahn said. Regarding the outdoor adventure side of the business, he said the company can rent equipment to customers, provide recommendations on camping and canoeing, and prepare camping sites with pre-lit fires and coolers stocked with food. Hahn said equipment rental, private events and short-term rental packages start at $100, and services range up to $5,000 for all-inclusive group packages.
