NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) – ThedaCare announced on Thursday the completion of a $100 million investment to modernize ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Neenah.
The modernization of the facility transforms health care for all those living in the region and allows ThedaCare to continue its commitment to keeping care local in the Fox Cities.
“Our teams are dedicated to making care easy and accessible, helping our patients achieve
better health for life,” said Imran A. Andrabi, MD, FAAFM, president of Froedtert ThedaCare
Health. “We are inspired by the enhancements and expanded care options that will be offered
through this investment in our legacy hospital.”
Andrabi continued to say in a statement that the updates will advance coordinated care throughout the ThedaCare service area, including critical access hospitals, giving patients greater access to innovative and specialized care.
The advancements support the campus that currently provides critical care services, such as the region’s only Level II Trauma Center, certified Comprehensive Stroke Center, and Emergency Department.
The project was announced back in October of 2021, and construction began in January of 2022.
“Patients and families were our priority when we planned the design and construction phases
of the project, allowing our community members to continue accessing critical services with
ease,” said Lynn Detterman, Senior Vice President of ThedaCare South Region.
Some of the highlights from the transformation include the Emergency Department expansion doubling in size with 20 exam rooms and the latest technology. ThedaCare says they also added another helipad for the ThedaStar Air Medical Program.
For nearly 115 years, ThedaCare has been improving the health and well-being of the communities it serves in Northeast and Central Wisconsin.
The organization delivers care to more than 650,000 residents in 17 counties and employs approximately 7,000 providers and team members at 180 points of care, including eight hospitals.
