News Release: Health care design-build leader to break ground on $6.5 million facility

PressReleaseIconMADISON, Wis. (May 2, 2013) — ERDMAN, a Madison-based national leader in health care consulting, facility planning, development and design-build, will break ground on a new, $6.5 million medical and dental clinic that it is building for Access Community Health Centers on Wednesday, May 8 in Madison.

 ERDMAN and Access, the federally qualified health center serving Dane and Iowa counties, are partnering to plan, develop and build the Joyce and Marshall Erdman Clinic, which is expected to open in late 2013. It will be located next to the new Urban League of Greater Madison building at the Village on Park Mall on South Park Street, and will total about 22,000 square feet, three times more space than Access’ current medical clinic at the mall. The building will house medical and behavioral health services, as well as dental services.

 The clinic will be located in a neighborhood that Access has served for more than 20 years, replacing its current South Side clinic. This is the first clinic Access has built from the ground up. The new location will allow Access to better meet the diverse community’s growing need for medical and dental services, helping establish a new health care facility for patients who are underserved or without access.

 “We are grateful for the generosity of those whose contributions have made this clinic a reality, and humbled at the level of commitment in our community for increasing care to people who need it,” said Access CEO Ken Loving, M.D. “We’re also fortunate to have a partner in ERDMAN to manage this important project. I’m confident that their tremendous experience, well-balanced team, skills and expertise will make this project a success.”

 The clinic will be named for Joyce and Marshall Erdman, founders of the ERDMAN firm and longtime Madison community leaders, thanks to a donation made to the project by their family.

 Access has grown more than tenfold in the past decade, serving more than 25,000 patients in 2012. Over the years, it grew in scope from offering primary medical care to now serving as a place where patients can receive comprehensive primary medical and dental care, behavioral health services, pharmacy services and more at its five locations throughout Dane and Iowa counties.

 “Marshall and Joyce Erdman built our company on a foundation of integrity and standing behind our commitments to each other and the communities we serve. We are extremely proud to support Access’ mission to make full-service health care more accessible to our community and to continue to build on the legacy established by our founders,” said ERDMAN President and CEO Brian Happ.
