Aspirus Woodruff clinic to expand
October 04, 2019
Aspirus is adding to its health care services in Wisconsin’s Northwoods by expanding its Woodruff clinic.
This expansion will allow Aspirus to provide expanded care for patients and deliver a broader continuum of care.
“We are very excited to announce this expansion and our continued investment in the Woodruff community,” said Matthew Heywood, president and chief executive officer of Aspirus. “Aspirus continues to see an increase in patient demand, and this expansion allows us to respond to this growth in our mission to improve the health of our communities.”
Aspirus officials say the $1.8 million project will result in increased access to Aspirus primary and specialty care providers and services through a 4,100 square-foot addition.
That will bring the total square footage of Aspirus’s Woodruff clinic — which opened in July 2008 — to just over 14,240 square feet.
The Woodruff clinic currently offers primary care, lab services, radiology, mammography mobile imaging, gastroenterology, orthopedics, podiatry, and physical medicine & rehabilitation.
“This enhancement to our clinic in Woodruff will give Aspirus patients more local health care options,” says Robb Fabich, director — Aspirus Clinics. “We’re excited to be able to improve the overall wellness in the Northwoods.”
The addition to the Woodruff clinic follows recently announced plans for a $14 million, 22,000 square foot addition to the Aspirus Rhinelander Clinic.
Ten people are currently employed at the Woodruff clinic and Aspirus expects to add another seven jobs once the new addition is complete and fully occupied.
Aspirus spokesman Andrew Krauss said Tuesday work on the Woodruff clinic’s expansion is scheduled to begin Oct. 14 with completion expected in the spring of 2020.
