The 47,000-square-foot medical center, which is expected to be completed at the end of 2013, is being built on an 18-acre parcel of land at the northeast corner of the intersection of Wisconsin Highway 66 and Interstate 39, just north of the Stevens Point Airport.
Mayor Andrew Halverson says, “Stevens Point is becoming a destination for Healthcare in Central Wisconsin, and the Marshfield clinic project anchors a near record year for new construction that is approaching $50,000,000.”
Marshfield Clinic President Dr. Brian Ewert has said, “Marshfield Clinic is very pleased to have a more significant presence in Stevens Point and Portage County. The Clinic has had a presence in the community since 1988, when the Stevens Point Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center became part of the Clinic’s regional system. This building literally cements the Clinic’s commitment to the community and to people who will seek their health care here.”
According to the Marshfield Clinic, the Stevens Point Center building project will cost about $18.5 million, including land, infrastructure and equipment. It will house 17 health care providers and a total of 50 employees.
Services provided at this location will include walk-in care and specialty services such as cardiology, dermatology, nephrology, ophthalmology/optometry, oral surgery, podiatry, rheumatology, physical therapy, lab and infusion therapy. Outreach services for both adults and children will continue to be added as opportunities to serve are identified.
Marshfield Clinic Cancer Care – Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology practices will remain at Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital.
The Marshfield Clinic system provides patient care, research and education with 57 locations in northern, central and western Wisconsin, making it one of the largest comprehensive medical systems in the United States.
