MADISON — Madison Healthcare Services is celebrating the completion of a $16.5 million renovation and addition to its facilities in Madison by Kraus-Anderson.
The project, which was launched in September 2020, adds needed assisted living housing in Lac qui Parle County.
Designed by HGA Architects, the 52,639-square-foot project features the renovation of the 51-unit skilled nursing facility and the construction of Prairie Winds Senior and Assisted Living, a new 12-unit facility. The project also adds underground parking spaces.
In addition to the skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, Madison Healthcare Services includes a 12-bed critical care access hospital and a medical clinic with specialty care, therapy and outreach services. Madison Healthcare Services also manages the Hilltop Residence, which offers senior independent living.
A 2018 facilities study undertaken by Madison Healthcare Services identified a need to renovate the current Care Center space, according to a West Central Tribune story published in October 2020. The study also found a need for additional assisted living housing in Lac qui Parle County.

The project is benefited by a $1.5 million major gift campaign in the community.
