SSM Health decides not to build Park St. clinic
SSM Health has decided not to build a replacement clinic on South Park Street on the site of the current Pick ‘n Save store.
SSM Health said after concerns were raised by residents in the neighborhood, they decided not to build there. They want to stay in South Madison and have decided to move forward with their multi-million dollar campus project on their existing South Fish Hatchery Road property.
“We hear you South Madison,” says Damond Boatwright, Regional President for SSM Health in Wisconsin. “We care about your health and well-being and understand the importance of maintaining access to healthy foods in our community. I am grateful to the community members who have provided feedback, asked questions and offered suggestions as we have worked through site selection for our project. Community input and engagement are essential to the success of a project of this nature.”
SSM Health said they believe moving their replacement clinic project away from South Park Street, specifically away from the land where Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. currently operate a store, Madison will have more time and flexibility to select the best developer and grocery partner for the Truman Olson Project.
SSM Health said the site change will require changes to their overall project plan. They are in the very early stages of planning and development process.
