Sioux Center Health CEO Cory Nelson revealed that the organization has launched its Growing Community capital campaign for a $33 million project to add family medicine and specialty clinics, expand its senior living campus, and to build a new home medical equipment and occupational/employee health building.

An article in the Sioux Center News confirmed that all projects are planned to be complete in 2022. Reporter Rene Wielenga writes: “Sioux Center Health seeks to break ground first on a memory care facility…the new 16-room assisted living memory care facility will be located on the northwest section of the Senior Living campus [in Sheldon, Iowa].”

The memory care facility will include a dining room, an enclosed private outdoor courtyard, activity and sensory stations, plus specialty care for those with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

“A fourth part involves adding 32 skilled nursing rooms on the north side of Royale Meadows,” writes Wielenga. “The plan includes 32 private, wheelchair accessible rooms with showers, family-style kitchen with satellite warmers, dining area, family gathering area, private outdoor patios, additional therapy services, special accommodations and assistance and personal 24/7 staff care.”

Changes to the main Sioux Center Health campus include remodeling the hospital’s main entrance as well as add a total of 16,024 square feet of space. According to Sioux Center News, the entrance remodel will relocate and redesign how patients get into the medical clinic as well as provide private admission areas for the hospital and medical clinic patients, separate registration area for the specialty clinic and private waiting rooms for the medical and specialty clinics.

Sioux Center Health plans involve adding 16 medical exam rooms to the family medical clinic to be able to integrate the urgent care clinic within the medical clinic and expand behavioral health services. Its plans also include adding seven rooms to the specialty clinic to help increase specialty services.
