Gundersen St. Joseph's announces partners, gathers feedback for Hospital, Clinic project

Gundersen St. Joseph's announces partners, gathers feedback for Hospital, Clinic project
Monday, January 09, 2017

Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics is continuing work towards a new Hospital and Clinic in Hillsboro with the selection of design and construction partners and outreach to the community for project feedback

Gundersen St. Joseph's has selected architecture firm HGA Architects and construction management firm CD Smith as partners in this project. These selections follow evaluation of requests for proposal from firms on planning, design and evaluation of the potential scale and scope of the project.

"HGA and CD Smith will help us get closer to our goals for this project: a modern, healing environment for the best possible patient care and experience, and a more efficient space for our providers and staff to provide the best care," says Garith Steiner, interim chief executive officer, Gundersen St. Joseph's.

In addition to hiring project consultants, an important part of pre-design project work is gathering community feedback and input. "We will spend the next couple of months giving information and getting information," Steiner says. "Our leadership team asked the Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation Board – a cross-representation of community members – how they thought we should go about gathering community feedback and input. Their recommendation was to go out to community organization meetings and share information about the project and hand out a survey."

"We are taking their advice and have reached out to several organizations and asked to come to their meetings to share information and gather input through discussion and a survey," Steiner continues. "We will be handing out surveys to patients in the Hospital and at our clinics in Hillsboro, Elroy and Wonewoc, and we will also have the survey available on our website," The link is:
