The new Mukwonago emergency
department will be part of a 65,000 square-foot addition to
the D.N. Greenwald Center.
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.
