The Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network announced today plans to build a community hospital and attached medical office building at the intersection of Taylor Drive and Saemann Avenue in Sheboygan’s growing health care corridor.

The 165,000-square-foot, four-story facility is expected to feature a 10-bed community hospital, 10-bed emergency department, imaging services (including X-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT rooms with potential for MRI imaging), four operating rooms and outpatient clinical offices with exam and treatment rooms. Plans for the project were approved by the Sheboygan Planning Commission in July.

“Our presence in the Sheboygan community aligns with our continued investment and commitment to provide access to academic medicine to the people of the diverse communities we serve,” said Cathy Jacobson, president & CEO of Froedtert Health. “This facility is the next step in our northern expansion, complementing our acquisition of Froedtert Holy Family Memorial Hospital in Manitowoc, Wis. and our recent partnership with 11 primary care providers who have been practicing in the Sheboygan area for many years.”
