  • Rusk County Hospital Closer To New Ownership A Rusk County hospital is one step closer to having a new owner. The Rusk County Board of Supervisors has approved a Letter of Intent to sell the Rusk County Memorial Hospital in Ladysmith, and the Clinic at Riverside to Marshfield Clinic Health System. In exchange, Marshfield Clinic Health System will build a new health care campus in Rusk County within the next five years. Health officials say the Letter of Intent is an important step in finalizing a partnership between Marshfield Clinic, Rusk County and health officials. The board says it followed months of negotiations and in-depth study regarding opportunities to grow and sustain critical access hospital and health care services locally.
