March 12, 2020 – West Bend, WI – Demolition is underway at the former West Bend Health Center, 1700 Paradise Drive in West Bend. The multistory building is being leveled for additional parking as the new West Bend Health Center is located directly to the south.
The West Bend Health Center was originally built in phases. The first section dates to 1990 and additions were completed before 2000.
What a waste. No wonder the price of health care is so high!
I agree 100%! No reason this building could not still be used!
Seems to me the building demolition could have waited to see if more bed space is needed due to Covid-19, if there is an outbreak in Washington County that usurps the hospital’s capacity.
