Earlier this month in Sheboygan County,Wisconsin,an area of the state not too far from Milwaukee and other major cities in the state,local approvals were made for a brand new Aurora Health Care Complex that will cost more than $300 million and will bring a whole new level of health care to the county.
Aurora,a major health care company with outposts all over the country,first announced this project back in 2017. But it wasn’t until May of 2019 that the final approvals were made. The company plans on getting construction underway by the end of summer 2019,a time that is fast approaching.
Aurora,which is based in Milwaukee and has employees living in many business apartments, says the 345,000-square-foot hospital and 115,000-square-foot office building are going to hopefully be completed by the end of 2021,a little more than two years after construction is set to begin.
“Now is the time for a new facility to create greater access to care for our growing communities we serve,” Carrie Killoran said in a press release. “The new Aurora Medical Center Sheboygan County will be a state-of-the-art medical facility that will be focused on delivering high-quality health care services close to home.” Carrie Killoran is the executive vice president with Advocate Aurora Health. She also noted that the complex will aim to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the community,a community they are proud to serve.
According to an Aurora Health Care spokesman who is authorized to speak on the matter,Aurora Health Care will lease the property from the Kohler Co.
She also revealed that Mortenson is the general contractor on the project. Advocate Aurora Health plans to pay for the Kohler project with existing funds and/or cash generated by operations,she continued.
