Over 117 years ago, Holy Family Memorial was founded with the purpose of meeting the healthcare needs of Manitowoc County. We are honored to be this community’s partner in accessing affordable, quality healthcare. The HFM Lakefront Campus is the next step in taking healthcare into the future. This 15,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art, outpatient facility includes patient-centered design elements and modern touches. This premier destination for healthcare will consolidate the HFM Woodland Campus and HFM Two Rivers Campus into one convenient location, while also allowing for more space to provide additional services.
Services at HFM Lakefront Campus coming October 2017:
- Family and internal medicine
- Specialty services
- Diagnostic testing (lab and imaging)
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Wellness services
- Occupational medicine
On July 20, 2016 HFM broke ground on the building project for HFM Lakefront Campus. HFM staff, community officials and neighbors came out to celebrate the revitalization project for the old Hamilton warehouse site. The groundbreaking was the first step in bringing the future of healthcare to Two Rivers.
“This is such an exciting project and is so important to the community and the care we’re providing patients,” Jane Curran-Meuli, chief operating officer and executive vice president of Holy Family Memorial.

The Finishing Touches
As spring sets in on the Lakefront Campus, the majority of the building is complete. Now, contractors are working diligently on the finishing touches and getting the building ready to serve as a clinic. In the past two weeks, the vinyl flooring installation continued, the cabinetry and chair rails were install, the ceiling tiles were dropped into the grid and painting was finished. On the exterior, landscaping began, as well as the completion of the asphalt parking lot and striping.

Starting to Look Like a Building
The masons have been busy completely the brick work on the North and East facades of the building. The roofers have started installing the roof membrane, making the building weatherproof and ready for interior work. The building has temporary heat and the drywall work will begin soon.
During the last two weeks of February, the masons are busy completing the brick work on the exterior of the building, the TPO roofing is being completed on the lower roof, and the interior progress has begus to take shape. As you can see by the pictures to the right, the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire rough-ins are complete. Insulation is then laid over the rough-ins, then drywall is hung. The interior door frames are also being set, as well as continued work on the canopy and high roof.
During the first weeks of March, the metal siding is being installed on the high roof, the glass windows are going in, providing a more complete look to the exterior. On the interiors, carpenters are finishing the drywall, with tape and mud to make sure they are ready for primer and paint in the coming weeks.
As March continues, so does the construction and development at the HFM Lakefront Campus. Improvements include adding windows to the exterior walls, completing the drywall with final taping and mud, more metal siding installation, and the completion of the curtainwall glass.
The beginning of April brought finish work on the site, including the excavating for the bieretention pond, laying cement for driveways and the parking lot, as well as completion of the metal siding installation. On the inside of the building, the ceiling grid has been hung, painting and priming continue, lighting installations have begun, and ceramic tile are being placed.
The great weather in the last two weeks of April allowed for more outdoor work to be done. Concrete work, sidewalks, and curbs have been installed. The carpenters are hard at work on the interior, installing doors and hanging cabinets. Tiles have are continuing to be installed, the ceiling grid is complete, and the painting is almost done.
The first week of May has seen a lot of finishing work, to include the installation of bathroom fixtures, laying of vinyl floors, more tile and cabinetry installation, and electrical finishes, including permanent power. The exterior has seen major improvements in completion of city sidewalks, binder course and the beginning of asphalt being laid.
The Beginning of the Building
Steel has been delivered and crews have been working hard to get the structural components set. Once the beams and columns are set, the decking can be laid on top of them and the building will have a roof for the first time. Once the roof has been put into place, crews will begin to work on framing exterior walls and building detailing.
Throughout December, iron workers pushed through the cold and wind to continue the steel erection. They detailed the steel and installed the metal deck at the roof. The exterior walls started to take shape with the stud walls being built.
January brought the completion of the structural steel and decking. Exterior wall progress kept pace and the interior walls will begin to take shape. Once all the exterior sheeting is hung, the masons will begin.
As January wrapped up, the exterior of the building was wrapped in vapor barrier and scaffolding was put in place. The masons are doing brickwork while the interior is having mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-ins installed. The building has been temporarily sealed so the interior can be heated in preparation for the drywall that will begin in February.
A Strong Foundation
The first week of October led the way for the beginning of the construction phase for the Lakefront Campus. Excavators rolled in and began laying the work for the foundation of the new facility, as well as site utility work. Construction crews were hard at work forming and pouring the concrete footings that will be the base of the foundation.
As October continued, so did the construction on the foundation and footings. More forming, pouring, and backfilling have been completed and the foundation is rapidly approaching competition. While the weather still allows, grading has begun on the site and to the road, ensuring future landscaping and the parking lot construction can begin without delay.
November led the way for the crew to begin pouring the slab, dig piers for the canopy and lay stone for the parking lots. In the bottom pictures on the right, you can see the different stages of the slab being prepared and finished. You have see bits of the yellow insulation placed under the slab, exposed dirt and the finished concrete. Since the footprint of the building is relatively large, the slab pour has to be done in separate phases.
Holy Family Memorial held a groundbreaking ceremony on July 20, 2016 in the 800 block of Roosevelt Ave, in Two Rivers, for its new outpatient facility. Groundbreaking attendees included Mark Herzog, Jane Curran-Meuli, Dr. Pradeep Giriyappa, Colleen Marx, Dan McGinty, Don Brisch, Greg Buckley, Dan Morgan, and Jim Yehle. The reflection and blessing were conducted by Father Richard Klingeisen.
“This initiates a very important step for our organization, this community and indeed health care overall,” said Mark Herzog, HFM president and CEO.
HFM Lakefront Campus began with an empty lot on Roosevelt Ave. in Tow Rivers. It was the previous site of a warehouse, but when purchased, the property only contained a foundation that needed to be removed before construction could begin.
Plans for the facility will be 15,000 square foot campus will be located near the intersection of Memorial Drive and Roosevelt Avenue and provide primary and specialty care services, diagnostic testing, rehabilitation therapy and wellness for our community.
According to HFM Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Jane Curran-Meuli, “The HFM Lakefront Campus is the result of HFM’s purposeful emphasis on consolidating health care campuses to create excellent customer experiences and at the same time deliver value to the community by lowering costs.”
