WAUSAU – Aspirus plans to expand services at its Aspirus Stevens Point Campus to include hospital care. Engineering and design plans are being finalized with an expected opening date in February 2020.

Aspirus has experienced a significant increase in patients seeking care at the Stevens Point campus with the expansion of services offered last summer, Aspirus said in a news release. The next phase of the expansion includes adding an eight-bed medical/surgical patient care unit and additional inpatient and outpatient services to the Stevens Point Campus.

“We are extremely proud to continue to invest in the Stevens Point community,” said Aspirus President and CEO Matt Heywood in the release. “This expansion will allow Aspirus to provide more and better care to the growing number of people who choose us.”

The Stevens Point Campus opened a freestanding emergency department in June 2018. The 40,000 square-foot expansion included expanded walk-in services, primary and specialty care and medical transport service with an ambulance garage and helipad.

The 75,000-square-foot Stevens Point campus currently offers adult and pediatric primary care, walk-in care and same-day surgery, as well as select specialty care, such as obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, cardiology, GI and oncology.
