Burrell breaks ground on $2M Marshfield clinic

Posted online

Burrell Behavioral Health broke ground Oct. 27 on a roughly $2 million clinic in Marshfield that will replace an existing facility in the Webster County city.

County and state officials joined Burrell leadership in Marshfield for the groundbreaking ceremony at 1069 Banning St., the future site of the 5,000-square-foot clinic, according to a news release. State funding is accounting for half of the investment in the new behavioral health clinic, with Burrell providing the remainder, said Clay Goddard, president of Burrell’s southwest region.

Burrell currently operates a clinic in Marshfield at 1350 Spur Dr., Ste. 230, where it offers addiction recovery services, community services, adult outpatient, youth outpatient, adult psychiatry, youth psychiatry and telehealth services. Officials say the new location, located near Interstate 44, will boost accessibility to the communities it serves and be bigger in both size and scope than the current facility, which is less than a mile away.

Goddard said Burrell has operated its existing Marshfield clinic for around 10 years in roughly 1,500 square feet.

The Marshfield clinic is a testament to Burrell’s commitment to establish permanent roots in Webster County, Goddard said, adding the project’s timing could not come at a more crucial juncture.

“Mental health access is a significant need in rural communities,” he said in the release. “A nationwide survey in 2021 found that over one in five adults in rural areas reported having a mental illness. And 5.1% of adults in nonmetro areas reported having serious thoughts of suicide in the past year.”

With the expanded space, the Marshfield clinic team is expected to roughly double in size. Elizabeth Avery, Burrell’s southwest region chief operating officer, said that the new clinic will bring aboard about eight to 10 additional employees, according to the release.

Officials say the new clinic is expected to be completed in 12 to 18 months. A general contractor is yet to be selected for the project, which is designed by Hood-Rich Inc.
