MEQUON — The new Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Mequon Health Center, 11430 N. Port Washington Road, will open Oct. 19. A news release said it will bring convenient access to a wide array of health care services to the area.

Residents are invited to get a first look at the new 92,000-square-foot facility at an open house from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Visitors will be able to meet physicians and other medical staff, tour the building, enjoy refreshments and participate in activities and drawings for prizes. Children are invited to bring a stuffed animal for a checkup.

The Mequon Health Center will offer urgent care from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Specialty care will include endocrinology, orthopedics and sports medicine, spine care, physical, occupational and speech therapy, podiatry and pain management. Screening mammography as well as other imaging services and laboratory services also will be offered.

The design of the new health center responds to the trend toward digital health care, and will be equipped to offer technology options such as virtual consults and e-visits.

“We strive to provide the right care in the right place at the right time,” said Dr. Mark Lodes, president, Froedtert & MCW Community Physicians. “Many of our patients come from the Mequon area, and they tell us they want high-quality care that’s convenient and fits their lives. The Mequon Health Center is designed to deliver on that, offering health care that’s close to home with a streamlined connection to the Froedtert & MCW academic medical center if needed.”

The Mequon Health Center will have a special emphasis on sports medicine, orthopedics, and spine care, including a walk-in clinic for acute orthopedic injuries and surgical consults. A unique feature of the new building is a 15,000- square-foot, state-of-the-art sports performance and training facility. Programs will be managed by NX Level, a Waukesha-based, nationally known athletic performance enhancement company. The programs are designed to help teams, groups and individuals develop speed, flexibility, strength, endurance, nutrition, body composition and awareness in any sport.
