Aspirus Woodruff Clinic Breaks Ground on Expansion

October 4, 2019

Aspirus is adding to its nationally-recognized health care services in Wisconsin’s Northwoods by expanding its Woodruff clinic.  

This expansion will allow Aspirus to provide expanded care for patients and deliver a broader continuum of care. The $1.8 million investment in the community will increase access to Aspirus primary and specialty care providers and services through a 4,100 square-foot addition.

The community recognizes Aspirus as a leader in rural health care and Aspirus is responding to the requests for additional services. This is an opportunity for the organization to grow by ramping up investments in the community and committing more money and resources to build on the growing expectations from patients in the Northwoods.

 “We are very excited to announce this expansion and our continued investment in the Woodruff community,” said Matthew Heywood, president and chief executive officer of Aspirus. “Aspirus continues to see an increase in patient demand, and this expansion allows us to respond to this growth in our mission to improve the health of our communities.”

The Woodruff clinic currently offers primary care, lab services, radiology, mammography mobile imaging, gastroenterology, orthopedics, podiatry, and physical medicine & rehabilitation.

“This enhancement to our clinic in Woodruff will give Aspirus patients more local health care options,” says Robb Fabich, director - Aspirus Clinics. “We’re excited to be able to improve the overall wellness in the Northwoods.”

This builds on Aspirus’ commitment to the region. The health care system recently announced plans commit $14 million to the Rhinelander community with a 22,000 square foot addition to the Aspirus Rhinelander Clinic.

Aspirus currently employs 10 people at the Woodruff clinic and expects to add another 7 jobs to the community once the new addition is complete and fully occupied.
