SWCAP Neighborhood Health Partners

Platteville, WI

Cooperation with public-private downtown development results in more space, increased functionality, and renewed awareness within the community

Southwest Wisconsin Community Action Program (SWCAP) Neighborhood Health Partners clinic building in downtown Platteville was limiting the organization’s ability to meet local demand for its services.

The City of Platteville’s 2010 Downtown Master Plan identified the block it was located on for potential development, and in the process of public-private funding partnership, it was decided to locate a new Platteville Public Library on the site of the existing clinic and renovate the existing library for SWCAP.

The $16.2 million Platteville Library Block project also included construction of a Holiday Inn Express and underground and surface parking. National Construction was contractor for the entire block of redevelopment; funding sources included City of Platteville tax-increment financing, Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) and Forward Community Investments new market tax credits, and a developer specializing in hotels and real estate.

Multiple moves in complex construction timeline

The project began with the demolition of more than six existing buildings – SWCAP’s original clinic, single-family homes, high-rise apartments, and a business.

The clinic relocated to the city’s former police headquarters for more than a year while the library and hotel were completed. National Construction provided minor renovations to the temporary location, which is now used as City of Platteville office space.

Once the library moved into its new building, renovations for the clinic’s new home began.

Professional, expanded clinic enables expanded access

The former library more than doubled the clinic’s square footage, and provides a more healthcare-centric space. The location with better visibility has also increased awareness of its services within the community.

The clinic plans to add behavioral health services in the near future. The first floor and lower level also features space for future tenants.

Originally established in 1973, SWCAP Neighborhood Health Partners also has clinics in Monroe and Dodgeville.
