For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – The final steel beam was placed today at Marshfield Clinic Health System’s new hospital in Stevens Point as construction of the hospital moves to its next phase.
A crane operator placed the steel beam during a small ceremony on May 13.
The new hospital, attached to its existing clinic at 4100 State Highway 66 is expected to open for patient care in spring 2022 and be named Marshfield Medical Center-Stevens Point.
“Today’s milestone reaffirms a commitment to the Stevens Point community that spans nearly three decades and is poised to bring a broader array of medical and surgical services,” said Ryan Neville, chief administrative officer for Marshfield Medical Center-Stevens Point. “The addition of a hospital to an already comprehensive cancer center and full-range of primary and specialty care services will help us deliver on our promise of providing excellent care close to home for our patients.”
In addition to offering a full spectrum of cancer care, the Health System’s Stevens Point Center offers 29 specialty services, adult and pediatric primary care, physical and occupational therapy, urgent care, lab, imaging and optical. The hospital expansion will add 12 inpatient rooms, a surgical suite with operating and procedural rooms, combined emergency/urgent care department and more.
Marshfield Clinic continues to expand its services in the Stevens Point community. In 2013, Marshfield Clinic opened its doors to the new Stevens Point Center. In 2017, the cancer center was built to provide oncology/hematology and radiation oncology services, as well as access to dozens of cancer-related clinical trials and services. In 2019, urgent care service debuted at Stevens Point Center allowing people access to more immediate health care.
The Health System and University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point have a collaborative partnership to expand educational programs to develop the future healthcare workforce, and the Health System is the exclusive sports medicine partner to care for the school’s 500-plus athletes and 20 sports teams.
