Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care announced that it plans to spend $38 million to convert its administrative office building at W180 N11070 River Lane in Germantown into a medical office building and outpatient surgery center.
“We are excited to unveil our plans in Germantown, which will bring our high-quality, world-class care closer to home for many patients,” said Carrie Killoran, president of Aurora’s Milwaukee-north market. “Additionally, this re-purposed facility will increase access to specialty care in an outpatient setting, which has proven to be more cost effective.”
The facility will be an Aurora Health Center and will offer a variety of new specialty and diagnostic care services. Spread over three floors, the new offerings will include outpatient surgery, women’s health, orthopedics, cardiology, medical oncology and imaging.
Estimates call for 140 caregivers to treat 350 patients each day at this location, according to Aurora. The site is currently home to approximately 300 non-clinical, Aurora employees who are relocating to other facilities in the region.
Construction for the project will primarily be contained inside the existing structure. External work will include the addition of an awning and minor changes to the parking lot layout.
Construction will begin in August, 2015 and is expected to continue for approximately one year.
