The planning commission for Mt. Pleasant, WI—also the future home of Foxconn’s $10-billion LCD factory—has unanimously approved Advocate Aurora Health’s $228-million proposal to build a hospital and medical center here. It’s slated to be built on about 86 acres near the northeast corner of Interstate 94 and Highway 20.
Advocate Aurora plans a 198,000-square-foot medical center and 98,000-square-foot attached medical office building on the site. The medical center is planned to include 60 surgical and intensive care beds, four observation beds, five operating rooms and two procedure rooms.
The MOB will house a variety of outpatient services and approximately 24 specialty providers, sports medicine, rehabilitation services and a small conference center.
Construction is expected to begin late this summer or early fall, Advocate Aurora’s Brian Esswein told the Journal Times. Early 2022 is the targeted opening to patients.
The project’s general contractor will be Mortenson Construction of Minneapolis.
