Wadena Medical Center expansion is underway

Wadena Medical Center recently broke ground on a 2,320-square-foot expansion project.

The expanded area will include:

• Nine exam rooms

• Three nurse's stations

• Two physician offices

• Additional waiting room space

• Upgraded procedure room

The United States Department of Agriculture has awarded funding for the project through its Rural Development Community Facilities program, which finances essential community buildings and vehicles.

"With the addition of one physician, three mid-level providers, and several specialty outreach physicians in 2008 and 2009, we have outgrown our space," said Judy White, WMC clinic administrator. "We are excited about this project which will provide us with the necessary space to serve the needs of our patients."

Look for the entire project to be completed by October.
