Inspired Past; Healthier Future
ThedaCare is excited to continue to progress on the $100 million modernization project underway at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah. The Inspired Past; Healthier Future project will transform health care for all those living in the region and allow ThedaCare to continue its commitment to keeping care local.
Since the groundbreaking in spring 2022, construction crews have been working on multiple areas of the transformation. The project supports our mission of improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve. The modernization will allow us to enhance and expand services.
