Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics continues its commitment to patient care in Elroy with plans to build a new downtown clinic.
Construction of the new building at Main and Franklin streets is expected to begin in November and the clinic will open next summer. The new facility will provide a comfortable, modern space to deliver the same exceptional care patients have come to expect.
"The decision to build a clinic downtown is deliberate," said Gundersen St. Joseph's Administrator Kristie McCoic. "This is an opportunity to make care more accessible and reignite a spark in Elroy's downtown."
The downtown clinic is welcome news for Elroy, City Administrator Carole Brown said.
"The economic impact on our downtown and the entire community will provide opportunities for growth and development for years to come," she said. "The city of Elroy could not be more thankful for Gundersen St. Joseph's concern for not only the physical and mental health of our community but also the economic health."
McCoic thanked Brown, Jim Garvin and the Elroy City Council for their support and commitment to the project.
Gundersen St. Joseph's celebrated the first anniversary of its new hospital and clinic in Hillsboro earlier this month.
