Mother-Baby Expansion Project

Over the next nine months, UnityPoint Health - Meriter will renovate 36,000 square feet of existing hospital space for a $15.5 million Mother-Baby Expansion Project.  A new agreement was signed with Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin (GHC_SCW) to provide mother-baby services to its members beginning January 2018.  The additional new patients, estimated at around 850 a year, will increase Meriter's overall Mother-Baby services by 20 percent.

The project will create more patient rooms, family spaces, ultrasound suites, a milk laboratory and additional work space for staff. Completion is expected in December 2017.   As the largest birthing hospital in the state, UnityPoint Health - Meriter is already a very busy place.

Yes, I would like to support the expansion project for mothers and babies!
