WAUKESHA — Patients and guests visiting ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital could be in for a new greeting with proposed remodels of the East Entrance and North Wing of the facility.

ProHealth Care wants to create a new registration and waiting area for clinical services on the second floor of the North Wing and rebuild the East Entrance to include a new canopy to better cover patient and transit vehicle traffic, according to information prepared for the Waukesha Plan Commission. In addition, ProHealth Care intends to create safer traffic flow with a “roundabout” and a more direct pedestrian traffic path between the parking deck and the building entrance.

The organization says it also plans to create a larger lobby for an outpatient entry and a greeter station.

The memo says the architecture will incorporate lots of glass, with a masonry rain screen panel for accent.

The final site plan for the work at ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital, 725 American Ave., will be discussed during Wednesday’s Plan Commission meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, 201 Delafield St.

Waukesha city staff is recommending that the commission approves the final site plan and architectural approval of the new East Entrance project with all engineering department, fire department and water utility comments.
