Froedtert South Inc.
6308 Eighth Ave., Kenosha
Industry: Health care
Froedtert South’s presence in the Kenosha community traces back more than a century, but in recent years, the nonprofit health care system has been in major expansion mode.
Froedtert South, formerly United Hospital System, includes two hospital campuses and four physician clinic locations.
United Hospital System merged with Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2017, creating the Froedtert South name and brand. The two organizations now share an electronic health records system, and Froedtert South has adopted Froedtert & MCW’s quality protocols and best practices.
The system recently unveiled plans to build a two-story hospital and four-story medical office building near a growing corridor in Mount Pleasant, northwest of Highway 20 and Highway V. Initial plans call for a two-story, 65-bed hospital, with the option to expand to four stories and 98 beds in the future, along with a freestanding 50,000-square foot medical office building.
Froedtert South is also nearing completion on a 322,000-square-foot expansion and renovation of its St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus in Pleasant Prairie to house an advanced outpatient surgical wing. Froedtert South expects to employ 100 to 125 additional people as a result of the expansion.
It has also announced plans for a four-story, 50,000-square-foot medical office building at the new Main Street Market Development in Pleasant Prairie.
