FINAL PLANS APPROVED FOR EXPANSION AT ST. CATHERINE'S HOSPITAL
PLANS CALL FOR ADDITION OF ADVANCED OUTPATIENT SURGICAL WING
On Monday, May 8, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission considered and approved final site and operational plans for United Hospital System’s St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus that will accommodate the construction of an Advanced Outpatient Surgical Wing. The 242,540 square foot expansion will be constructed adjacent to the existing hospital located at 9555 76th Street in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
Plans call for the first floor to accommodate a lobby, lounge and 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 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.
Work at the site is already underway in preparation for construction of the expansion, which is expected to commence shortly. 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.
