MEQUON - A proposed three-story medical office
building on North Port Washington Road will house primary care and
specialty clinics for Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of
While the plans have been under discussion with
Mequon officials since early September, the development now has been
linked to Froedtert, which will be making its first foray onto the
“Ryan Co. is the developer of the medical office
building planned for Mequon,” said Kathleen Sieja, media relations
director for Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin. “We
haven’t finalized plans beyond that we are likely to offer primary
care and some specialty care services at that location.”
Froedtert’s primary-care clinics now are primarily
located west of Milwaukee in locations that include Germantown,
Menomonee Falls, West Bend and Sussex. In addition to its flagship
hospital at 9200 W. Wisconsin Ave. in Wauwatosa, its network
includes Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls and St.
Joseph’s Hospital in West Bend.
The Ryan Companies, which already has broken ground
on a 42,500-square-foot Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin clinic at
West Mequon Road and Market Street, is proposing to build the clinic
on the east side of North Port Washington Road at Venture Court on
two existing lots, one of which now houses an aging retail complex
best known for the Wooden Goose restaurant, which is relocating.
Plans for the 86,000-square-foot building are
advancing with the city. The Mequon Planning Commission and Co..mmon
Council approved revised plans for the building in mid-October.
Sieja said earlier this week that it is too early to
say when they hope to occupy the building, which they will be
renting from Ryan. However, a representative from Ryan told members
of the Planning Commission this fall that he expects the building to
open late in 2016.
The project has an estimated value of $21 million.
