Memorial Medical Center New Hospital Project Update, 3/7/18
Wednesday, March 07, 2018

    -Memorial Medical Center:  Small Hospital, Big Difference, Brighter Future!  In November of 2016, Memorial Medical Center announced the building of a new $40 million facility to continue to serve the health care needs of Clark County and the surrounding area.
    In order to keep the community informed, here’s the latest on the progress of the project:
    “Marshfield Clinic Health System and Memorial Hospital, Inc. signed a letter of intent to provide more accessible quality health care services to the Neillsville community through an affiliation partnership.  The signing of the letter of intent signals the start of a due diligence period to finalize terms of the acquisition with a goal of completing the transaction by June 30.  The two organizations have worked collaboratively for decades. Currently six Marshfield Clinic specialties are active at Memorial Medical Center, with Radiology most recently added. 
    ‘This new partnership builds on more than three decades of collaboration between our two organizations, and signals a future of health care in Clark County where patients will have even greater access to care delivered where, when and how they want it,’ said Marshfield Clinic Health System CEO Dr. Susan Turney.
    This affiliation supports the construction of a new $40 million medical, surgical, and outpatient clinic in Neillsville. The current medical center was built in 1954. The new center will further enable the two organizations in providing more accessible health care services to the community. 
    ‘This new level of partnership will enhance health care in Clark County by increasing coordination of one system in the delivery of care, providing a location for Marshfield Clinic to provide additional specialty care and aligns Clark County's largest health insurer, Security Health Plan, with a local presence,’ said Memorial Medical Center CEO Ryan Neville. 
    MMC board member Russell Ratsch stated, “Memorial Medical Center and Marshfield Clinic have a long history as trusted partners providing healthcare services to the Neillsville area and surrounding communities.  Joining together at this time of transformation and renewal promises expanded healthcare services delivered locally in a new state of the art facility as well as strengthened employment and economic growth opportunities.”
    Memorial Medical Center is also answering any question you may have like this one:
    “Q:  What does MMC joining MCHS mean for the community?
    A:  MMC will continue to fulfill its mission of providing the best experience in health care.  But data has pointed out that they need to join with MCHS to continue to do this to the best of their abilities.  85% of MMC’s patients are also patients at MCHS.  Only 40% of the direct community utilizes MMC while 60% utilizes MCHS and 41% of their revenue is from Security Health Plan.”
    “Q:  What does MMC joining MCHS mean for the employees?
    A:  MMC’s Board of Directors’ main priority has always been maintaining local employment.  With this agreement, employment at MMC will be maintained.”
    “Q:  What does MMC joining MCHS mean for the new facility?
    A:  That project will continue.  MCHS supports the construction of this $40 million dollar facility and all plans, plus some additional programs will move forward.  MMC will continue to collaborate with Sniteman’s Pharmacy, Art of Optometry and Neillsville Care and Rehab for the project as well.  This change will only move the project timeline back a few months.”
