ProHealth breaks ground in Pewaukee

ProHealth Care announced today that it will break ground for its new state-of-the-art cancer center on Sept. 17.

ProHealth also unveiled details of the project, which recently received final approval from the Pewaukee Plan Commission.

The design of the cancer center started with understanding the ideal experience from the patient’s point of view. The building was then designed to bring that vision to life.

“The building’s stunning architecture will create a signature structure in the community,” said Ken Price, ProHealth’s senior vice president for administration. “It will be both a testament to our community commitment and a symbol of the outstanding care we provide.”

The design will support ProHealth’s multi-disciplinary approach to cancer care, meaning that patients benefit from the clinical expertise of a highly specialized team of experts and that all aspects of a patient’s care are carefully coordinated from the time of diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.

For example, patients receiving infusion therapy will have the option of getting their care while sitting outside in a rooftop garden overlooking a tranquil pond.

“We are thrilled with the result of our design process,” said Peter Johnson, M.D., a medical oncologist and medical director of the ProHealth Care cancer program. “This project will deliver tremendous benefits for our patients and the entire community.”

The new cancer center will pull together all of the services patients need. It will be the centerpiece of an ambulatory campus that also incorporates a full-service imaging and diagnostics center and a multi-specialty physician clinic. The clinic will replace ProHealth’s Stone Ridge clinic, just across Pewaukee Road.

The cancer center is expected to open early in 2015.

ProHealth will continue to operate cancer centers at Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital and the D. N. Greenwald Center in Mukwonago, offering care close to home for patients in those areas. The outpatient cancer services now on the Waukesha Memorial Hospital campus will relocate to the new cancer center in Pewaukee.
