For Hub City Times
NEILLSVILLE – A ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Marshfield Medical Center-Neillsville will be held Aug. 19, at noon, at N3700 River Ave., Neillsville.
The 101,000 square-foot hospital will include 16 beds and offer primary care, walk-in care, and general and orthopedic surgery. It also features a 24/7 emergency room as part of the state-designated trauma program, two operating rooms, an infusion suite, and a secure landing zone for a medical helicopter.
The partnership with Marshfield Clinic Health System also allows a greater access for Neillsville area residents to medical specialists and telehealth services.
“Marshfield Medical Center-Neillsville is expanding its service offerings to the greater Clark County area without disruption during the construction process,” Chief Administrative Officer Ryan Neville said. “Through outreach services and telehealth, we have access to world-class health care right here in Neillsville. In many cases, patients can avoid the drive to Marshfield or Eau Claire for care.”
Fundraising will begin soon to include a state-of-the-art wellness center at the hospital, which will be the first of its kind in the community.
Marshfield Medical Center-Neillsville currently has about 240 employees and 20 providers.
The hospital is anticipated to open in spring 2021.
