The location of the new Ripon Medical Center is looking busy these days as site preparation has begun to start the footings and foundation for the building. Work started on Tuesday, April 2, and the pouring of concrete is occurring. The site work was pending state approval, which has since been received, and warmer temperatures have helped to thaw the ground enough to begin work. This site preparation signals a milestone in Ripon Medical Center’s history. The new facility is slated to open summer 2014.
