Volunteers needed to help guide patients during Mukwonago hospital construction

Construction work that will transform ProHealth Care’s Mukwonago campus into a community hospital has created opportunities for additional volunteers on the campus.

The work has required the temporary closing of the main entrance on the campus. Outdoor and indoor signs are in place to direct patients and visitors to parking, temporary entrances and interior destinations. Community volunteers also are needed to escort patients.

“Patients and family members frequently tell us that helpful and upbeat volunteers make their health care visits less stressful,” said Marcia Rupp, manager of volunteer services for ProHealth Care in Waukesha and Mukwonago. “In turn, our volunteers say they enjoy meeting and assisting people while getting some indoor exercise.”

Rupp invites community members 16 and older to contact her to learn more about volunteering in Mukwonago. She can be reached at 262-928-2328 or at marcia.rupp@prohealthcare.org.

All of the medical services at the Mukwonago campus will remain open throughout construction. Three different driveways allow for convenient parking. The driveway to the 24-hour emergency department is the first one visitors will encounter when traveling south on Maple Avenue. Primary care and walk-in clinic services can be reached by using the second driveway off Maple Avenue. All other services can be reached from a third driveway, which will take people to the entrance at the back of the building. Handicapped parking is available near each entrance.

The new hospital is expected to open in spring 2020.
