ThedaCare is merging with Appleton-based Hand to Shoulder Center of Wisconsin and Neenah, Wis.-based Neuroscience Group to form a spine, orthopedic and pain hospital in Appleton, reports Fox 11 News.

Four things to know:

1. With the merger, Appleton-based ThedaCare plans to open a $144 million facility that will feature medical offices, a specialty surgery center and an orthopedic and spine hospital.

2. Demand for spine and orthopedic services is rising due to an aging population becoming more active in the state, ThedaCare executives told Fox 11 News.

3. The 230,000-square-foot facility will break ground in spring 2020 and open in late 2021.

4. The hospital will create around 75 healthcare positions and 200 construction jobs.
