Construction Update

With the majority of steel erection now complete, the focus has shifted to enclosing the building.  Exterior wall framing and roofing are all tasks that need to be complete before the building is considered enclosed.  The exterior wall framing has already begun; roofing work will begin in February and continue to the beginning of March. Thank you again to Market & Johnson for the bird’s eye view of the building.

 

 

It’s a Boy. First baby born at SCRMC in 2018!

Aeva Heier and James O’Brien of Siren, WI had something very special to celebrate during the first week of the New Year– the birth of their son, Heath Mikael Scott O’Brien. Kelly Schmidt, FNP, CNM and Dr. Jill Ties delivered him on January 2, 2018 at 2:30 PM. Labor support OB Nurses were Kayla Bistrom, Kim Johnson, Shelly Potter and Jenny Stone. Assisting in his delivery was OB Nurse, Kerry Swenson. Baby Heath weighed 8 lbs.11 oz. and measured 19 inches long at birth. He has the honor of being the first baby born at SCRMC in 2018.

As the parents of the first child born in 2018 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center, the proud and happy couple received a gift basket valued at over $800. Included in the basket are gifts from the medical center, SCRMC Volunteer Partner’s Gift shop, The BirthPlace Photographers, a $50 gift certificate from Wal-Mart, an hour massage for mom from SCRMC’s Kinisi Institute for Movement, a $20 gift card to Patient Perks Coffee Shop located at St. Croix Regional Medical Center and other gifts generously donated. We are grateful to these merchants and staff for offering these gifts for the baby and family of the first child of 2018.

Waiting on Steel

The dirt has been moved and footings are in place. We now patiently await the delivery of the steel beams. In the video below, you can slightly see the shape of the new building and the exact location on the lot. To put it into perspective, the curved area on the right will be the new front entrance facing Hwy 35. A special thank you to our builder, Market & Johnson, for the great drone video.

The Old Webster School

Webster has a rich history and within that history is a school that was erected in 1921. The school was then abandoned for a new school with modern technologies, new classrooms and sports facilities. In the demolition of the old school, SCRMC wanted to ensure that we kept a piece of that history and will be incorporating a few of these pieces into the new building.

Groundbreaking October 2017

After nearly two years of planning, the ground breaking ceremony for the new Webster Health Center was held on October 3. The new Webster Health Center will be located on Hwy 35.  The health center will provide medical, dental, physical rehabilitation, counseling and wellness services. The center also contains a community meeting space.

Webster Health Center is designed as a 23,000 square foot, one-story building with 16 exam rooms including two procedure rooms, a dental office, space for community classes and a fitness center adjacent to psychical rehabilitation.

“There are many changes taking place in the health care industry. This new center will enable us to prepare for the future needs of the community by expanding access to quality care in a modern facility with the latest equipment and technology,” said Dave Dobosenski, SCRMC CEO.
