REEDSBURG AREA MEDICAL CENTER

Healthcare Clinic

Kraemer Brothers is constructing a $20 million, six-phase, 31-month expansion and renovation project at Reedsburg Area Medical Center, keeping the existing hospital fully functional throughout the entire project. This project consists of the construction of a new central utility plant and mechanical penthouse, along with the associated mechanical and electrical equipment required to replace the existing forty-year-old mechanical systems in the hospital. The new penthouse was constructed on top of the existing 2nd floor West wing. 

The project also included phased renovation of major portions of the existing hospital to convert patient rooms from double occupancy to single occupancy, expansion of the laboratory, renovation of the administration wing, a new pharmacy, renovation of the existing lobby and entrance, converting existing garage space to a mechanical room, window replacement, and constructing an outdoor cooling tower ‘bullpen’. The renovation was completed through arduous ‘one wing-at-a-time’ demolition and construction, which commenced after completion of the central utility plant and mechanical penthouse. The total area of new and renovated space is 52,100 square feet. When the project is complete in May 2020, Reedsburg Area Medical Center will have a state-of-the-art hospital which will be providing excellent health care for another forty years.
