Irgens announced the groundbreaking of a state-of-the-art medical office building on the campus of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. The freestanding facility will house primary and specialty care programs for St. Joseph’s Hospital (an affiliate of Hospital Sisters Health System), including physical/occupational therapy and occupational medicine. Family Health Associates, an employed primary care physician group that provides a full range of medical care including obstetric and pediatric care, will be an anchor user in the building. The facility will also house on-site laboratory and imaging services along with a retail pharmacy.
As developer and owner of the facility, Irgens designed the project concept and performed the necessary due diligence to facilitate the project in an efficient and cost-effective manner, including assembling a full design team and consultants, investigating the constraints of the site, understanding the entitlement process, preparing economic models to create a viable project, and providing all capital necessary to develop and own the facility.
St. Joseph’s Hospital Medical Office Building is located at 2509 County Highway I, will open in December 2014, and provide easy access to healthcare services for businesses and individuals throughout the region. Project team members include AbbyBank, Kahler Slater Architects, and Market & Johnson (contractor).
