Kenosha-based United Hospital System plans to build a 194,888-square-foot addition to the St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus in Pleasant Prairie. The expansion will add an advanced outpatient wing to the hospital at 9555 76th St.
The Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission on Monday approved a conceptual plan for the project.
The conceptual plan calls for 61,941 square feet on the first floor to accommodate a lobby, lounge, café, courtyard, registration and waiting area, private preoperative suites, a minimum of eight surgical suites, and recovery areas. The plan also calls for a 46,653 square foot lower level to accommodate support areas, a relocated receiving dock, and a trash enclosure. An additional 40,448 square feet on the second floor and 22,923 square feet on both the third and fourth floors will eventually house various outpatient services.
Construction for the expansion project is expected to begin in 2017.
St. Catherine’s will add 100 to 125 employees to work in the advanced outpatient surgical wing.
