ProHealth Care expands and updates sports medicine and rehabilitation space in Mukwonago

ProHealth Care has expanded and remodeled its sports medicine, physical therapy and occupational therapy areas in Mukwonago, adding 2,000 square feet of space and renovating a total of 6,500 square feet in the D. N. Greenwald Center.

The $920,000 project began Sept. 28, 2015, and was completed March 18, 2016. The new space has allowed ProHealth to expand the services it offers in Mukwonago, including its sports medicine therapy services and its rehabilitation team. When hiring is complete, four additional physical therapists will provide services, including two who specialize in sports medicine.

Highlights of the renovation include:

  • A dedicated sports medicine area with flooring designed to minimize impact, TRX suspension training equipment, and space for therapy that can include kicking and throwing balls and jumping.
  • Four new treatment rooms that feature wide doors, windows and efficient use of space.
  • Updates to existing treatment rooms including wide doors.
  • The removal of a wall to open up gym floor space and ceiling height for training and rehabilitation equipment and for patients and therapists to work together.
  • A new room dedicated to occupational therapy.
  • Additional exercise and training equipment.
  • An expanded waiting room.
  • Non-slip flooring.
  • LED lighting.

“We are thrilled to be able to accommodate more patients and serve them more efficiently,” said Julie Jackson, director of ProHealth Care’s rehabilitation services.

Jill Van Susteren, who leads the rehabilitation services team at the ProHealth D. N. Greenwald Center, said a wide variety of services are provided at the site for patients who are recovering from or being treated for athletic injuries as well as other orthopedic injuries, cancer rehabilitation, strokes, cardiac conditions, spinal injuries, work injuries and other medical conditions.

“With the new and improved space, we can offer even more patients the opportunity to work with ProHealth physical therapists in the Mukwonago area,” Van Susteren said. “Whether they need physical or occupational therapy, aquatic therapy, lymphedema therapy or another service, we can provide individual care in a bright and comfortable environment with the right equipment for their needs. By hiring the new therapists, we can also reduce wait times for appointments.”

ProHealth Care’s Greenwald Center also is the home base for the ProHealth athletic trainers who work with Mukwonago High School, Kettle Moraine High School and Waukesha South High School.

The recently completed renovation is the second major project at the Greenwald Center in less than a year. In July 2015, ProHealth Care added a 24-hour hospital-level emergency department at the center, which is located near the intersection of Interstate Highway 43 and State Highway 83. In addition to the emergency department and rehabilitation services, the center houses diagnostic imaging, laboratory services, a clinic with health care providers who have expertise in nearly 20 different specialties, occupational health services and the services of UW Cancer Center at ProHealth Care.
