Marshfield(WAOW)--Three health care centers in Marshfield will work together to improve care for patients that need mental health care.

Starting November first, Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Saint Joseph's hospital will transfer those patients to Norwood Health Center.

While the changes are going to make care more efficient, the care takers involved are going to miss their patients.

"We've got twenty people. Twenty staff members here at St. Joe's they've dedicated, some of them, a good portion of their career to caring for these folks and people with these conditions," President Brian Kief said. "It was pretty difficult for them quite frankly. They've handled it well they're great people."

Those twenty jobs mentioned will be phased out. The three health care centers will provide opportunities for those twenty employees to seek future employment.
