Marshfield Clinic Health System announces plans to build facility in city

Area residents will have increased local options for local heath care services.

Marshfield Clinic Health System has announced plans to expand its services in Medford with plans to build a new medical facility that will bring primary and specialty physician, emergency medicine and hospital services to the Medford community. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2022 following city approval, and open for patients in 2023.

According to the release announcing the plans, Marshfield Clinic Health System representatives state: “Marshfield Clinic has served residents of Taylor County for more than 100 years and our patients have consistently requested that we provide more services locally.”

Mayor Mike Welllner said that the city will work with Marshfield Clinic Health System to help them bring their facility to our community.

“We are looking forward to a good working relationship with Marshfield Clinic Health System,” Wellner said.

The new medical facility will include a multi-specialty medical group, licensed hospital beds, emergency department, and lab and imaging services. The release continues: “Residents should have easy access to health care services delivered in a timely manner where they choose to receive it. The patients we serve who reside in Medford and surrounding communities have expressed their need for local Marshfield Clinic services. The addition of primary, specialty care and emergency care helps meet that need, and means that our Medford patients and residents won’t have to travel as far to receive their care at Marshfield Clinic.”

“These hospital projects represent the continued progress of our strategy to expand access to excellent care for rural communities. We made a promise to those we serve that we would provide care how, when and where they want to receive it, and we are proud to keep delivering on that promise,” said Dr. Susan Turney, CEO Marshfield Clinic Health System.

The announcement came as the health system also announced the name of its Stevens Point project and the expansion of the Wisconsin Rapids
