The $13 million clinic is planned for 5.7 acres located southwest of North Sunnyslope Drive and Spring Street, according to plans submitted to the village. The 22,500-square-foot, one-story facility will include 26 primary care and three urgent care exam rooms, two procedure rooms, and will include space for a future pharmacy, the plans said.
"Our team is looking forward to making this $13 million investment and providing high-quality, cost-effective health care for residents in the Village of Mount Pleasant and beyond," said Lisa Just, president of Advocate Aurora Health’s Racine Kenosha Lake patient service area. "This project is one component of our overall plan to expand health services to meet the rapidly growing health care needs of residents in southeastern Wisconsin."
Aurora has an existing clinic about three miles southwest of the site of the planned development.
In May, Advocate Aurora Health
announced plans for a $250 million development on a 96-acre site northeast of I-94 and Highway 20, within miles of Foxconn Technology Group’s campus. The project will include a new hospital, two clinics and a medical office building. It’s expected to be completed in 2021.
Aurora also announced in February that it plans to build a $130 million ambulatory surgery center
and physician office building in neighboring Kenosha County. The facility will be located in the Prairie Highlands Corporate Park, north of 104th Street and west of I-94 in Pleasant Prairie.
