Aurora to build cancer treatment facility in Kenosha

Milwaukee-based Aurora Health Care plans to build a $31 million, 61,082-square-foot complex for cancer treatment and a pain management and ophthalmology center in Kenosha.

The facility, consisting of two conjoined buildings, is planned for a site at 118th Avenue and 68th Street, a vacant parcel between a Steinhafel’s store and a Gander Mountain store, near I-94. The site is also close to Aurora’s existing Kenosha hospital at 10400 75th St. That facility was built in 1999 and expanded in 2004.

The cancer center will be about 35,385 square feet. It will serve about 750 chemotherapy and radiation patients each year, according to Aurora.

The pain management and ophthalmology center will be 19,343 square feet of space, plus 6,272 square feet of shell space for future expansion. This medical office building will house pain management and ophthalmology services and will include general medical exam rooms, procedure rooms, an optometry lab and retail area, and reception areas.

“This development will allow Aurora to meet the growing health care needs of residents living in southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois,” Aurora said in the plan of operations it submitted to the city of Kenosha.
