Advocate Aurora Health has made several investments in Kenosha County to meet the needs of its growing population.

At Aurora Medical Center-Kenosha, which was built in 1999, the health system recently expanded its services in the areas of women’s health, emergency department and cardiac rehab. It is also currently creating dedicated observation beds and enhancing interventional radiology services at the medical center.

“It’s no secret that this area of southeastern Wisconsin is expanding in population and major developments that have added to our local health care needs, creating a need to expand at Aurora Medical Center Kenosha in women’s health, cardiac services and emergency care,” said Lisa Just, president of Advocate Aurora Health’s eastern corridor patient service area.

Advocate Aurora is also building a new $130 million health center in Pleasant Prairie, which is expected to open in summer 2020. The facility will include a 100,000-square-foot ambulatory care center and a three-story, 100,000-square-foot professional office building.

“Upon opening, the new Aurora Health Center in Pleasant Prairie will expand much needed pediatric services to the region through a new offering of Aurora Children’s Health, as well as offering same day services including general surgery, orthopedics, urology and Aurora Sports Health,” Just said.
