WAUKESHA — Froedtert Health has purchased the LifeCare Hospital building at 2400 Golf Road in Waukesha from HCRI Properties, LLC. for $30.6 million.

In a statement, Froedtert’s Media Relations Director Kathleen Sieja confirmed the purchase of the property, but said Froedtert had not acquired LifeCare Hospitals of Milwaukee, the company that runs the long-term care facility.

“LifeCare will continue to independently operate its long-term acute care hospital at this location under a lease with Froedtert Health,” Sieja wrote. “Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network will continue to operate the Froedtert & MCW Lake Country Surgery Center, an outpatient surgery center adjacent to LifeCare Hospital that opened in September 2016.”

Froedtert Health has no additional plans for the Golf Road site at this time, she added.
