MUKWONAGO - ProHealth Care announced an expansion into Mukwonago with a new emergency department that will open July 6.

The emergency department will be the centerpiece of a 65,000 square-foot addition to the standing D.N. Greenwald Center. Located just off Interstate 43 and Highway 83, the emergency department will serve patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week; it is projected to serve up to 13,600 patients each year by 2020.

The new department will also bring 90 new jobs to the area, in emergency services, cardiovascular testing, laboratory, and other support areas. The same board-certified emergency physicians who currently staff the ProHealth Care emergency departments in Waukesha and Oconomowoc will staff the new Mukwonago location. They will be supported by complete laboratory and diagnostic services.

The facility expansion includes 25 treatment rooms, including a trauma room designed to accommodate two patients. There is also advanced diagnostic technology, a helipad for patient transport as needed, and a comfortable reception and check-in area.

The new emergency department expands the health services already operating at the D.N. Greenwald Center. The center currently houses a ProHealth Care Medical Associates clinic, a full-service cancer center, and rehabilitation services with occupational therapy, among other services. Patients who arrive at the emergency room and require inpatient care will be transferred to Waukesha Memorial Hospital.

The center is also undergoing renovations for an expanded laboratory,  radiology services, access to on-site food service, and an expanded pharmacy.

19 Waukesha County and 13 other Wisconsin firms are involved in the expansion and renovation project, estimated at $38 million.

The emergency department will open its doors July 6, with an open house planned from 9:30 a.m. to noon on June 27.
