Marshfield Clinic to add on at Craig Road
Posted: May 8, 2015
The City of Eau Claire Plan Commission this week approved a site plan for a 17,500-square-foot addition to the south end of its main clinic at 2116 Craig Road. The addition will accommodate an overnight recovery unit.
The clinic expansion will be constructed in an area that is presently occupied by 91 parking stalls. However, according to the plans submitted to the city, the clinic will have plenty of parking to meet the needs of the city's required parking stalls.
"The addition to the clinic's existing ambulatory (outpatient) surgery center at its Eau Claire location will provide a recovery center for patients to stay overnight, if needed, following their procedures," said Marshfield Clinic Health System CEO Susan Tierney in an e-mail to The Bottom Line.
Tierney said that the plans for the recovery center are part of a national trend towards attempting to "reduce costs and improve patient experience by providing care at the most appropriate site of service." TBL
