Doctors, staff look forward to new facility along the lakeshore
MANITOWOC – BayCare Clinic will host a grand opening event on Wednesday, September 22, for the new BayCare Clinic Lakeside Campus in Manitowoc.
The grand opening is scheduled to take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It will be held at the new 46,000-square-foot facility built on 9.3 acres of land along the city’s lakeshore.
The facility is at 1111 Bayshore Drive, just north of the roundabout at Waldo Boulevard and Maritime Drive.
“This new facility will help us better meet the increasing demand for localized, specialized health care services,” says Dr. Alexander Roitstein, president, BayCare Clinic. “It’s also an illustration of our continued commitment to providing specialty health care services to the Lakeshore region.”
Manitowoc Mayor Justin Nickels offered praise for the new building.
“This state-of-the-art facility is a welcome addition to the continued development of our community. The construction of BayCare Clinic Lakeside Campus is evidence of our continued and successful efforts to promote growth and economic development within the Lakeshore region,” Nickels said.
The BayCare Clinic specialty medical departments moving into the new facility are Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic, BayCare Clinic Neurological Surgeons, BayCare Clinic Pain & Rehab Medicine and Aurora BayCare Urological Surgeons.
