Marshfield Medical Center-Minocqua completes hospital expansion

​​​June 22, 2023

MINOCQUA – Marshfield Medical Center-Minocqua held a ribbon-cutting event today to celebrate the completion of its 45,000-square-foot hospital expansion, building on Marshfield Clinic Health System's commitment to Minocqua and surrounding communities. Services in the new hospital expansion open at 7 a.m. on June 26.

​The new hospital wing will increase inpatient rooms from 19 to 31, including six intensive care unit rooms, enhance emergency and urgent care, enlarge the pharmacy, expand respiratory therapy services, expand cardiology to include cardiac and pulmonary rehab, increase the size of family waiting areas, and allow for more hospital and clinic parking space.

“As a cardiologist, I am thrilled to witness the opening of this remarkable hospital expansion, which signifies a major leap forward in our ability to provide cutting-edge cardiology services to our community," said Dr. Michael McGill. “With state-of-the-art facilities and a team of dedicated specialists, we are poised to enhance cardiac care, saving lives, and improving the quality of life for countless individuals. This expansion demonstrates our commitment to delivering exceptional cardiovascular care, and I am honored to be a part of this transformative journey."

The expansion moves urgent care from the medical center to a shared entrance with the emergency department in the new hospital wing, a change that offers enhanced patient care as staff and providers can now triage patients upon entry. Additionally, an expanded campus allows more specialty care to patients across northern Wisconsin and throughout northern Michigan.

“We are thrilled to complete this hospital expansion, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to delivering exceptional health care services to our community," said Ty Erickson, president of Marshfield Medical Center-Minocqua. “This ribbon-cutting ceremony symbolizes our unwavering dedication to providing advanced medical care, state-of-the-art facilities, and a healing environment for our patients. We are proud to celebrate this achievement with our dedicated staff, visionary partners, and the entire community, as we continue our mission to improve lives and elevate the standard of care."
