New Aurora Health Center to be built along Highway 23

Monday, September 26, 2005

Fulfilling its commitment to significantly expand primary and specialty care services in Plymouth, Aurora Health Care today announced plans to build a large, new clinic on the city’s east side.

The new Aurora Sheboygan Clinic will be built on a 33-acre site on the southeastern corner of the intersection of Highway 23 and Pleasant View Road.  The building will encompass 80,000 square feet over two floors and include parking for up to 400 vehicles. 

The new clinic will be nearly five times the size of the existing clinic, a short distance to the south at 2636 Eastern Avenue.

“This proposal speaks volumes about Aurora’s commitment to the long-term health of the Plymouth area,” said Andrea Gavin, M.D., a family practitioner in Plymouth.  “Patients will be excited about the wide array of services to be available right here in our community.”

As part of the plan, Aurora will:

  • Move all existing physicians and services from the existing clinic to the new building
  • Expand the hours and availability of physician specialists at the new Plymouth site
  • Move most of the services currently offered at the Valley View Campus of the Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center to the new building, including urgent care
  • Continue to operate the surgery center at the Valley View Campus
  • Move the Aurora Rehabilitation Center from its current free-standing facility on the Valley View Campus to the new building
  • Operate a retail pharmacy in the new building

The new clinic will be L-shaped and feature a red brick exterior.  A covered patient drop-off area will be included at the lobby, and the clinic campus will be extensively landscaped.  The clinic will be accessible from both Pleasant View Road and Kiley Way.

Aurora leaders met with Plymouth city officials this week to discuss what needs to occur before construction can begin.  The city intends to annex the parcel, rezone it and then add it to an adjacent tax incremental financing district (TIF).

“This is a big step forward for Plymouth,” said Mayor William Kiley.  “Aurora followed through with a big, beautiful building in a beautiful area.  The citizens of Plymouth will be thrilled with the final product.”

Among the services available in the new facility will be bone densitometry, CT scans, laboratory services, mammography, nuclear medicine, behavioral health care, occupational health services, pain management, rehabilitation services, stress testing and ultrasound. 

The specialty care available at the new clinic will include audiology, cardiology, mental health, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, optometry, oral surgery, orthopedics and ear, nose and throat.  Acupuncture services also are planned.
The new, larger clinic will allow additional physicians to come to the community over the next several years.

Construction is expected to begin early next year and take about a year to complete.  The project is estimated to cost $12 million.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers care at sites in more than 80 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
