A groundbreaking ceremony was held

Friday morning, to officially kick-off

the construction of a 20,000 square foot

addition at Southwest Health Center in

Platteville. The addition will cost $7-million.

Dan Rohrbach is the Chief Executive Officer

at Southwest Health Center.


The addition will house the new women’s

health center at Southwest, along with a

new orthopedic and sports medicine

program. It’ll also provide more

space for the hospital’s rehabilitation

services department, and there’ll be

an expanded specialty clinic for

physicians. Also part of the project is

remodeling 5,000 square feet on the

second floor of the hospital for

administration and health information

offices. That’s so room can be made

on the lower level for the expansion

of sports medicine.

The addition to Southwest Health

Center should be completed by next
