Memorial Health Care Systems to expand Physical Therapy as well as Community Outreach and Education

A new construction project and remodeling effort are beginning at Memorial Health Care Systems.

This two-year plan includes an approximately 3,700 square feet 3rd-level addition to Memorial Hospital on the front of the hospital. Approximately 5,000 square feet will be remodeled in the lower level of Memorial Hospital and Seward Family Medical Center.

This project will make space available to expand our growing physical therapy services. We will be reassigning our community outreach and education spaces into the new 3rd-floor addition. The current community outreach and education spaces and current physical therapy space will be remodeled to accommodate more treatment rooms and therapy service areas.

Back in 2014 when MHCS added the outpatient center (lower level, specialty clinic, cardiac/pulmonary 2nd floor) it was announced that the center was being built in a manner that would allow for a 3rd level in the future. We are pleased to be able to invest in this facility and in the health of our communities we serve through this 3rd-floor addition. The projects will be funded by MHCS cash reserves from the long-term planning of this addition and MHCS Foundation Donations. 

While it would have been a great opportunity to move our therapy services department to the 3rd floor, the expansion could not be made large enough to accommodate this department. It was also not possible to put the weight of the aquatic therapy space on the 3rd floor of this building. Utilizing adjacent community outreach and education spaces to the existing therapy department will allow the therapy team to remain close to the aquatic therapy and continue to grow and offer exceptional care for our communities.

Throughout this project, our services will remain open and available. The main entrance to Memorial Hospital and Seward Family Medical Center will remain accessible.
