EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An open house is underway in Eau Claire at the Mayo Clinic Health System as community members receive a first-hand look at the fifth floor of the Luther Building.
Thursday afternoon the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the $19 million project. Organizers say it was funded by community donations received over the past 30 years. The fifth floor of the Luther Building will feature the pediatrics and neuroscience departments including four epilepsy monitoring unit rooms.
“The ability to provide a state environment to complete the objective of the emissions in the monitoring unit, so being involved in the design of the rooms doing it in a safe way has been great,” said Neurologist Scott Spritzer, D.O. Luther Hospital
The open house goes until 7 p.m. Thursday. Patients are expected to move into the new space on Jan. 4.
