Marshfield Clinic Seeking Two Purchase Two Ascension Hospitals

(Beaver Dam) Marshfield Clinic has an agreement in place to purchase two health facilities from Ascension. Saint Clare Hospital in Weston and Flambeau Hospital in Park Falls will transfer to Marshfield Clinic under a memo of understanding signed by both companies this week. In a joint release, officials with Ascension said keeping in mind the best interest of patients, communities, and associates in the area, the deal is best for everyone given the evolving health care landscape in Wisconsin and nationally. The deal means Marshfield clinic will scrap plans for a new hospital on Plaza Drive in Wausau. No further details were released. In May, Marshfield completed its affiliation with the Beaver Dam Community Hospital.
