The development will help by providing space the facility is in need of. The center plans to relocate to Winona Health's previous urgent care facility, offering the capability to increase their staff while providing more space."We have waiting lists in some of our departments of 75 or more clients who we keep on a list but they can't be seen if they are in a crisis or need help of some kind," Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center Executive Director Julie Hanson describes. Hanson sees the move as beneficial. "...I will be able to expand my staffing by about 30% to help the need of those clients." The project consists of two separate phases to remodel the old urgent care center. Phase one will update the space for psychiatry and counseling needs. Phase two will add a drop-in center for people with mental illness along with a community training center. Clients will continue to utilize the current facility until phase one is complete in August, with phase two scheduled for completion by April of 2019. Wieser Brothers is honored to partner with Hiawatha on this exciting project.
