Gundersen Health System starts the expansion process with a new Dental and Eye Clinic in Prairie du Chien.
Groundbreaking for the 8,000 square-foot facility happened Thursday.
The new building combines Gundersen's dental and eye services into one building at 118 Marquette Road. Currently, dental and eye services are in two separate buildings.
Once the new facility is finished in spring 2016, Gundersen will also expand their services including oral surgery, more vision exam space, and rooms for specialized eye testing.
“With more space, added services, new equipment and more convenient parking, we look forward to providing Prairie du Chien residents great care in one convenient stop,” said Scott Rathgaber, MD, chief executive officer of Gundersen Health System. “We are proud to be part of this healthy, vibrant community, and this project is consistent with our longstanding commitment to providing high-quality care for patients close to home.”
Gundersen Health System's medical clinic will remain at its current location at 610 East Taylor Street in Prairie du Chien.
