September 23, 2013/Moline, IL - Two local businesses, Audibel Hi-Tech Hearing Care and Dr. Kevin Smith P.C. are breaking ground on a new facility in the Valley View Drive Corridor of Moline, Illinois. Both businesses, currently neighbors at the Hamilton Heights Medical Building, are joining forces to build their own 4,000 square foot medical center. The official groundbreaking took place on the morning of September 23rd, and construction will begin within the next few weeks.
James Hanerhoff, Audioprosthologist and President of Audibel Hi-Tech Hearing, is looking forward to this expansion. "It will offer both Dr. Smith and I the space we need to better serve our patients.

The building will be located at on the corner of Valley View Drive and 36th Avenue/Harvest Drive. Construction will be completed by Daxon Construction and is expected to be completed March-April of 2014.
