ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus Renovates Space

Renovation Doubles space at ThedaCare Physicians-New London

ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus in New London is growing, thanks to the addition of two new providers. “This increase in providers meant an increase in staff and space needs so we expanded our area,” said Dan Gehri, practice supervisor.

Orthopedic surgeon Jack Lindstrom, MD, and Teasha Kaepernick, PA, joined orthopedic surgeon Terry Dietrich, MD, and sports medicine physician Richard Canlas, MD, to serve patients in the New London area. “This renovation is a commitment that allows our patients to continue to have top quality orthopedic care right in their community,” said Gehri.

The $250,000 renovation project at ThedaCare Physicians-New London includes the expansion of the provider office from three work stations to four; the addition of a new three person medical assistant station; and the addition of three new exam rooms.

Teasha Kaepernick said the renovations allow a greater quality of service to patients and doctors and staff. “This renovation basically doubled our space in New London and will allow us to efficiently see a much larger volume of patients,” she said.

ThedaCare Orthopedics Plus integrates orthopedics, sports medicine, outpatient rehabilitation and other services, with locations throughout the Fox Valley, including New London and Shawano.
