After years of planning and the generous donation by many residents of our community, Tomah Memorial Hospital became a reality when it opened its doors as a 29-bed hospital on April 7, 1952. Our community-minded friends gave their time and donations once again in 1955 to help construct the first addition to the original building, which increased the bed capacity to 57.
In July of 1957, a 27-bed nursing home was opened on the ground floor level of the Hospital. The nursing home bed capacity increased as more space became available in the years that followed but in 1974 the nursing home closed due to financial considerations.
Expansion of the Hospital progressed in 1966 with a major addition of the north and south patient wings. Additional changes in patient service areas occurred in the Laboratory in 1972; Radiology in 1975; and the Emergency Department and ambulance entrance in 1980. The need for an updated family-centered Obstetrics Department was recognized, and in response, work on a contemporary Obstetrics Department, named the New Beginnings Birth Center, was completed in 1984.
The need for an updated and expanded Emergency and Outpatient Department was met in 1994 with a major building project that also included renovation of some of the original 1952 structure to provide a customer-friendly health care facility.
In 2005, a nearly $10-million construction and renovation project was completed. Also,
$1 million worth of work added an 800 sq. ft. addition that now houses a state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit on the south side of TMH near the hospital’s Specialty Clinic.
In 2006, TMH expanded services in Warrens with the opening of the Warrens Walk In Clinic. Open seven days a week, the clinic provides care without an appointment for minor injuries and illnesses.
Recently, TMH opened a new 10,000 sq ft, $1.5 million dollar 8-bed serenity house and Hospice / Palliative care offices at 601 Straw Street in Tomah.
Over the years, growth at Tomah Memorial has been a commitment by the facility and Board of Directors to continue to provide high-quality care.
