Construction will begin in March on Gundersen Tri-County Hospital, a new hospital and renovated clinic for Gundersen Health System in Whitehall, Wisconsin.
The new facility, which will replace the current 60-year-old hospital, serves Whitehall, Blair, Independence and surrounding communities. Kraus-Anderson is the general contractor on the project with GROTH Design Group as architect.
The two-story, 69,000-square-foot hospital will feature private patient rooms, a trauma center and helipad landing zone near emergency services. The hospital will also include an ER, imaging, lab, pharmacy, surgical, dietary, rehabilitation and transitional care. A new ambulance and maintenance building will also be built on the site. The project will also remodel the current clinic.
Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2023.
