Advocate Aurora Health plans to build an additional medical center in Racine County at the corner of Spring Street and Sunnyslope Drive.
The $13 million clinic will be a one-story, 22,500-square-foot office building with 26 primary-care examination rooms, four urgent-care exam rooms, two medical exam rooms that can be used for clinic-based patient procedures, and support space for those services. The clinic will have imaging, laboratory/blood draw, and space for a future pharmacy, and will add 30 new positions for the staff.
On Wednesday, December 19, the Mount Pleasant Plan Commission recommended approval of rezoning and conditional-use requests to build the medical center, and that recommendation will next go to the Village Board.
“Adding this new clinic will provide much-needed additional access to primary care and urgent care in the communities we serve,” told Lisa Just, president of Aurora Health Care’s Racine, Kenosha, and northern Illinois patient service area., to the Journal Times.
Construction will likely begin in the spring and will open to the public in 2020.
