MILWAUKEE — Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin announced Wednesday it will open a new clinic on the northwest side of Milwaukee in the Midtown Center.

To be named the Midtown Clinic, the 20,000-square-foot center will be located at 5433 W. Fond du Lac Ave. and will offer pediatric and adolescent primary care, behavioral medicine and dental care.

The Midtown Clinic will be built in space formerly occupied by Office Depot and is targeted to open in late summer 2016. The new Midtown Clinic, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s presence at the new Sojourner Family Peace Center, and a donation announced today from The Harley-Davidson Foundation will expand Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s footprint in Milwaukee, according to the announcement. The gift from The Harley-Davidson Foundation will fund a Children’s Hospital school nurse at an elementary school and a community navigator in the neighborhood.

“We looked at current demographics and projected population growth in the city of Milwaukee, and we found a real need for pediatric health care on the northwest side of the city. Our new Midtown Clinic will bring care closer to home for these families and provide access to dental and behavioral health services, which are two of Milwaukee’s greatest health needs,” said Dr. Smriti Khare, president of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Primary Care, in a statement.
