GI Associates to expand in Stevens Point
For the City Times
CENTRAL WISCONSIN – GI Associates recently announced plans to build a new facility in Stevens Point.
“GI Associates has provided digestive health services in Stevens Point since 2006,” stated Dr. Benjamin M. Schneeberger, spokesperson for the group. “Demand for digestive health services in the area is growing. Our group has added new physicians and advance practice providers, and we simply need more space to provide care locally.”
The new facility will house a clinic and procedure center. It is expected to open in mid- 2022.
“For nearly 30 years, GI Associates physicians and advance practice providers have provided care in regional locations including Eagle River, Woodruff, Rhinelander, Antigo, and Steven Point,” stated Dr. Christopher A. Young, GI Associates president. “Our patients have told us how grateful they are to receive services from board certified gastroenterologists in their hometown. Given the growth in demand, and the ambulatory nature of most digestive health services, this expansion makes sense.”
The new facility will add about over a dozen positions in Stevens Point.
The exact location of the new facility has not be announced.
GI Associates currently offers services in Wausau, Stevens Point, Antigo, Rhinelander, and Woodruff.
