Aurora Health Care and Advocate Health Care announced their first major project in southeast Wisconsin since merging: A $250 million project consisting of a hospital, two clinics and a medical office building in Mount Pleasant near Foxconn Technology Group’s new campus.

Advocate Aurora Health Care executives had telegraphed a possible Racine County expansion in early April after their merger closed when Aurora CEO Nick Turkal told the Milwaukee Business Journal they were “thinking about how we’re going to serve that growing community.” On Thursday, they announced acquiring a 96-acre site for the project at the northeast corner of Interstate 94 and State Highway 20.

“Growth in the Racine County corridor provides an immediate opportunity for Advocate Aurora Health to accelerate our population health efforts to deliver greater value for the communities and employers we are privileged to serve,” said Jim Skogsbergh, president and CEO of Advocate Aurora Health. “We’ll bridge the gap in services and leverage our two legacy systems’ clinical expertise and fully integrated delivery models in the surrounding area.” Read the full story here.
