Hudson, Wis. – Team members got to put their John Hancock on a structural beam that will form part of the Emergency Center expansion at Hudson Hospital & Clinic. Dozens of colleagues signed their names on the seven-foot steel beam on Wednesday (Oct. 23). Later in the week, the beam was due to be lifted into place by construction partner, Kraus-Anderson.
Hudson Hospital & Clinic is expanding its Emergency Center to provide next generation care to the community for years to come. The expansion will almost double the size of the Emergency Center, adding exam, trauma and triage rooms, as well as increasing the size of those rooms.
The Emergency Center and entire hospital and clinic are open throughout construction. Emergency access is off Center Drive and clear signage points patients and visitors to the temporary access, about 100 feet left (south-west) of the previous entrance. All other patients visiting Hudson Hospital & Clinic or Hudson Physicians should continue to use the main entrance at the front (north) of the hospital, off Stageline Road.
