Aspirus | Aspire | Fall 2018

HEALTH CARE is only effective if it’s easy to access. That’s why Aspirus continues to expand its touch points in response to community need. Recent construction and renovation projects in the Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids areas are prime examples of this commitment. About 800 Aspirus employees serve Wisconsin Rapids and surrounding communities through Aspirus Riverview Hospital; Aspirus Doctors Clinic & Walk-In Care; and clinics in Wisconsin Rapids, Nekoosa and Rome. In addition, patients have access to excellent heart, vascular, cancer, wound and joint care.

AspirusStevens PointCampus Open since 2006, the Aspirus Stevens Point Campus has seen dramatic growth in patient volume. In response to demonstrated need, Aspirus increased access and services through a 40,000-square-foot expansion project at 5409 Vern Holmes Drive in Stevens Point. In June 2018, the final stage of the project was completed when the new emergency department began serving patients. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the state’s second freestanding emergency department. Freestanding means that it is located off-site from a hospital and designed to offer faster service for urgent situations that often don’t require a hospital stay. The expansion project added 50 jobs to the Aspirus Stevens Point Campus and improved care by adding and expanding services. New and expanded services include: w w 24-hour emergency center. w w Ground transport service with ambulance garage and helipad. w w Walk-in care. w w Primary care. w w Specialty care. w w Lab. w w Imaging.
