Thedacare has begun construction on its Regional Medical Center-Neenah in Wisconsin, which will cost US$100 million.
The project will include the extension and remodeling of the emergency department. This will have 20 exam rooms. In addition, the project will include the construction of a ThedaStar Air Medical Program Helipad near the emergency department to allow for speedy patient transfers.
Isolation rooms, which provide a protective environment for patients with infectious diseases, will be included in the medical centre.
ThedaCare's investment will also be used to expand the Family Birth Center and provide more room for stroke patients.
To enable better patient outcomes, the operating rooms will be updated and equipped with advanced robotic surgical equipment, and four specialized robotics suites will be built.
The company also intends to renovate the Women's Center, which will include mammography, diagnostics and imaging, and bone density tests.
In addition, the hospital will reconfigure its inpatient facility and reinstate the day treatment programme in order to focus on its behavioral health services.
The next phase of development is set to begin in the spring of 2022, with completion expected in the fall of 2023.
