Grand opening celebration set October 14 for WMH clinic addition
The landscape at Waupun Memorial Hospital (WMH) has changed as all Fond du Lac Regional Clinic and other local providers have relocated into one state-of-the-art facility at 608 W. Brown Street in Waupun with a direct connection to the hospital.
The public is invited to join the hospital for a grand opening celebration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 14. The event will feature tours, provider introductions, refreshments and giveaways.
Since October 1, a total of 21 physicians and other providers have been seeing patients in this newly-expanded facility. Some providers offer full-time services on the campus, including family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopedic surgery and pediatrics.
Others travel to Waupun to provide specialty care services, like dermatology, interventional cardiology, otolaryngology (ear, nose & throat), plastic surgery, podiatric medicine and surgery, psychiatry and urology.
The expansion project adds more than 20,000 square feet, including construction of a second floor to the hospital’s medical office building, as well as a 4,000-square-foot expansion on the medical office building’s first floor toward Brown Street.
In total, the project brings the total number of patient exam rooms to 36, five procedure rooms and 18 provider offices.
Agnesian HealthCare providers have served patients at three Waupun locations at either Brown Street or Beaver Dam Street prior to this opening.
“State-of-the-art facilities and equipment enable us to serve the community needs from the one building with direct access to the hospital,” according to DeAnn Thurmer, WMH chief operating officer. “It will assist us to add new services and programs, as well as recruit new providers required to support having as many healthcare services as possible at the local level.”
Waupun Memorial Hospital worked with C.D. Smith Construction as the project’s general contractor. Zimmerman Architectural Studios, Milwaukee, served as the architect.
