Waukesha County health care system ProHealth Care said Monday that it has now opened its new full-service community hospital in Mukwonago near the intersection of Wisconsin Highway 83 and Interstate 43.
ProHealth Care announced plans for a $55 million hospital at the site of an existing ProHealth campus in 2018. It's the health system's fourth hospital. Construction began in early 2019 but work was paused shortly after the Covid-19 pandemic set in. It was completed in November 2021 and after construction was restarted earlier in the year.
The Mukwonago hospital is named ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital-Mukwonago and includes 24 private inpatient rooms, a surgery and procedure center with four operating rooms, and a cancer center offering infusion and radiation therapy. Primary, specialty and urgent care clinics and laboratory and rehabilitation services are also available.
The hospital will add about 100 employees in Mukwonago. The existing ProHealth Mukwonago campus employed 210 workers ahead of the project.
ProHealth Care’s presence in Mukwonago has expanded over the years as the community has grown, ProHealth said. In 2005, a multi-specialty clinic and outpatient center opened on the site along Highway 83. In 2015, a 66,000-square-foot emergency department was added. And in 2018, a 31,000-square-foot addition created space for a specialty clinic and a center for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive health disorders.
ProHealth Care also includes ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital and ProHealth Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin in Waukesha.
The Mukwonago hospital was designed by Eppstein Uhen Architects, and construction was overseen by J.H. Findorff & Son.
