The growth of Crossing Rivers Health over the past year is evident in its expanding number of health care services, its fully-accommodating Prairie du Chien clinic, its newly-developed job positions, and its anticipation for future site development.
One year ago, on June 11, 2015, Crossing Rivers Health accomplished the incredible task of moving a medical center—nearly everything except the bricks and mortar. It was a three-day, precisely-orchestrated event, complete with a moving company, 1,500 totes and wire racks of supplies secured with shrink wrap, ambulances transporting patients and a staff command center directing all 340 employees on-deck.
“It happened without a hitch, really,” Chief Executive Officer Bill Sexton recalled last week. “There were some minor details, but everyone was excited about this new building that offers us a lot more opportunities than we had in the past.”
