On Deck - Thursday, January 6, 2022

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Thursday, January 6. Our top story is about local hospitals postponing elective procedures as they near capacity in inpatient and ICU beds amid the rise in COVID-19 cases. You’ll also hear about Springfield Clinic, a capitol-based healthcare provider that's opened four Peoria-area locations in the past 15 months. WCBU's Tim Shelley talks with Cal Thomas, Springfield Clinic's vice president of business development and marketing, about the company's business model ... and why it's zeroing in on Central Illinois. On Deck is produced by WCBU student intern Holden Kellogg.
