Door County Medical Center is in the early stages of its structural plans for a new skilled nursing care facility at its Sturgeon Bay campus. Currently located on its top floor, the Skilled Nursing Facility would move its 30 beds to the ground level of a new building to be located on the campus’ southwest corner. The project had to be scaled down when Door County Medical Center did not receive extra beds above the statewide limit of 30 in the last biennial budget. Door County Medical Center CEO Jerry Worrick expects the facility to be ready in just over a year.
Worrick hopes to break ground this summer and says it will take close to 11 months to build.
