Winamac Rural Health Clinic expanding at Pulaski Memorial Hospital

Expansion to the Rural Health Clinic at Pulaski Memorial Hospital is bringing big changes to the small town of Winamac and the rural communities that surround it. 

 

The 16,115 square foot expansion project had its official groundbreaking in November, 2020. Once complete, it will more than double the current size of the clinic. It's the largest building project the hospital has had since its 1963 opening.  

 

Brian Ledley, Vice President of Communications and Patient Experience said the clinic has gone from having just three providers to a group of twenty three physicians and nurse practitioners.

 

Ledley credited Pulaski Memorial Hospital CEO Tom Barry on recruiting the new medical and surgical groups, essentially growing the hospital. 

 

 

One of the biggest hopes is to provide the community with easier access to health care without the travel. Ledley says the community feedback has been positive. The continued growth strives to provide the best technology, medical staff and team of associates in the community. In 2017, PMH added a state-the-art MRI and CT scanner.

 

The newest expansion is extending the services the hospital can provide even more. 

 

 

The continuing pandemic has placed a challenge on the construction industry as well as the project timeline, which has been extended a few months longer than originally planned. PMH hopes for the new expansion to be open by the end of the year, with the exterior work being completeed in the spring of 2022.
