The buildings are planned for a 41-acre parcel located on the northwest corner of Highway 20 and Highway V, according to documents submitted to the village.

Initial plans call for a two-story, 65-bed hospital, with the option to expand to four stories and 98 beds in the future

Services at the proposed hospital could include general acute care medical and surgical, intensive care, obstetrical, pediatric, emergency, acute and chronic dialysis, cancer care, imaging, rehabilitation and education services, according to the plans. 

Froedtert South also plans to build a freestanding 50,000-square foot medical office building that would provide physician space and other outpatient services.

The health care organization could build additional medical office buildings on the property, depending on future demand, according to its plans.

The development is part of a new multi-use business park northwest of Highways 20 and Highway V developed by Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate.

The Froedtert South project comes on the heels of two other health care projects being planned in Mount Pleasant by its competitors. 

Advocate Aurora Health unveiled plans in May to build a $250 million health care development, which will include a new hospital, two clinics and a medical office building on a 96-acre site northeast of I-94 and Highway 20.

Ascension Wisconsin in August said it plans to build a $42 million medical center in Mount Pleasant. The 83,000-square-foot medical center is planned for the northeast corner of Highway 20 and Highway H in Racine County.

Froedtert South is affiliated with, but independent from, Wauwatosa-based Froedtert Health. The Froedtert South brand emerged last year as a partnership between Froedtert Health and the former United Hospital System. It currently operates Kenosha Medical Center and St. Catherine’s Medical Center campus in Pleasant Prairie.

Froedtert South officials could not be reached for comment Thursday.
