The Ascension urgent care centers will be located within Physicians Urgent Care-branded facilities.
“These new urgent care centers complement our existing urgent care and occupational health sites and provide additional care options to the communities we’re privileged to serve,” said Bernie Sherry, senior vice president of Ascension and ministry market executive of Ascension Wisconsin. “These additional sites of care will allow us to continue to deliver on the promise to provide care in ways that are affordable, accessible and convenient for our communities.”

Ascension said it is considering opening additional sites in southeastern Wisconsin, northern Wisconsin and the Fox Valley.
