Shawano Medical Center

Shawano, Wisconsin


The Shawano Medical Center replaces the existing 82-year-old, 25-bed Medical Center for this community of 9,300 residents. Designed as an addition to the ThedaCare Physicians Building, the Medical Center focuses on patient-centered care and preventive care wellness, consolidating all healthcare services to promote healthcare excellence, collaboration, comfort, and privacy for individuals and families.

The state-of-the-art hospital delivers up-to-date medical care with an eye toward evolving healthcare innovations and delivery methods, such as Medical Home, Accountable Care, and outpatient services. In planning the new hospital, the design team solicited input from patients, community members, staff, hospital board, and SMC Foundation board members on the site plan and design concepts. Interior planning emphasizes streamlined workflows and right-sizing adjacencies to maximize the patient experience.
