PRELIMINARY SITE AND OPERATIONAL PLANS APPROVED FOR ADDITION OF ADVANCED OUTPATIENT SURGICAL WING AT ST. CATHERINE'S HOSPITAL
On Monday, February 13, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission considered and approved preliminary site and operational plans for the construction of an Advanced Outpatient Surgical Wing at United Hospital System’s St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus. Approval of the preliminary plans will enable site grading to begin, along with the installation of early footings, foundations and underground utilities, during the spring of 2017.
Preliminary plans call for the construction of a 239,977 square foot addition adjacent to the existing hospital located at 9555 76th Street in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. Plans include a first floor that will accommodate a lobby, lounge, café, courtyard, registration and waiting area, private preoperative suites, a minimum of eight surgical suites, and recovery areas. The plan also calls for a lower level to accommodate support areas, a relocated receiving dock, and a trash enclosure. Second, third and fourth floors of the addition will eventually house various outpatient services.
In 2001, United Hospital System submitted site and operational plans for the medical center campus, which included a hospital with medical offices on approximately 50 acres within the Prairie Ridge development. During 2008 a multi-story expansion of the hospital building was completed. During 2010, a medial office building was added to the campus.
United Hospital System is expected to submit final site and operational plans for the current project later this spring in order to accommodate the start of construction this year. The project is expected to be complete during 2018. Upon completion, the Advanced Outpatient Surgical Wing is expected to employ between 100 and 125 employees, in addition to those currently working from the St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus.
