Wisconsin hospital to expand ED through $100M project

The ThedaCare board of trustees approved a $100 million investment to enhance services at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah (Wis.), which includes an expanded emergency department.

The renovations to the emergency department involve a new helipad and 20 exam rooms, with specialized rooms for trauma and behavioral health patients, according to an Oct. 25 news release from the hospital.

Changes also include:

  • An enhancement of care for stroke patients
  • An update of operating rooms with new advanced surgical equipment
  • An update of the family birth center
  • A new space for the women's center, with mammography, diagnostics and imaging, and bone density testing
  • An improvement of behavioral health services, with a redesign of inpatient space and reintroduction of day treatment
  • The creation of "Main Street" with key diagnostic outpatient services on the first floor
  • A new dining area on the main floor

Construction will begin in January 2022 and will be completed in fall 2023.

"The vast updates to the physical space at the Neenah campus will benefit the entire ThedaCare system, making our teams stronger together," said CEO Imran Andrabi, MD. "ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah will continue to serve as our anchor hospital for critical care with services such as the Level II Trauma Center, certified Comprehensive Stroke Center and emergency care located at the campus. The enhancements will advance coordinated care throughout our service area, including our critical access hospitals, giving patients greater access to innovative and specialized care, as close to home as possible."
