Replacement Health and Wellness Campus
Tomah Health’s existing 1950s-era facility on a small site held limited growth options, even after several renovation projects. To plan for the future, Tomah worked with BWBR to design a master plan that would respond to the region’s growth. The result of the planning led Tomah to pursue a new direction by selecting a greenfield site for a replacement Critical Access Hospital campus focused on health and wellness. BWBR also assisted Tomah in achieving the largest USDA financing amount awarded to date in the state of Wisconsin.
The new 40-acre site just south of town provides room to grow, space for affiliated health care providers, and excellent visibility from the nearby freeway. To truly capture the design essence, BWBR led a community visioning event and produced six hospital room mock-ups to immerse staff in their future patient-centered, highly efficient spaces.
The hospital welcomes both patients and the community. From a glass-walled, two-story entry atrium to an OB suite complete with water birthing tubs, Tomah’s new campus unites patients with the latest in integrated health care.
