ProHealth Care to open Mukwonago hospital Jan. 24
ProHealth Care’s new Mukwonago hospital will open on Jan. 24, making it possible for people in Mukwonago and surrounding communities to stay much closer to home when they need surgical services or inpatient care.
The new Mukwonago hospital will be a full-service community hospital operating under the auspices of ProHealth's Waukesha hospital. It will be named ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital-Mukwonago.
The new hospital will feature a modern, patient-centered design with a warm and inviting environment that promotes healing. It will bring together a wide range of health care services in one convenient location. Included will be:
- 24 inpatient beds
- A 24/7 emergency department
- Inpatient and outpatient surgical services
- Advanced diagnostic imaging
- Primary and specialty care
- A cancer center
- Cardiac diagnostic testing
- Cardiac catheterization lab
- Interventional radiology
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Sports medicine
- Speech pathology
- A GI procedure center
- Laboratory services
- A retail pharmacy
The hospital will add about 125 new jobs in the community. Hiring is underway now for positions in nursing, surgical services, maintenance, food service and other areas. Anyone interested in applying should review available positions at ProHealthCare.org/Careers.
Construction of the hospital began in February 2019. The pandemic prompted a pause in the project, but work resumed last spring.
The hospital is being created by expanding and renovating ProHealth’s existing medical campus in Mukwonago, which opened in 2005. Construction crews expect to complete their work later this month. ProHealth teams will then focus on furnishing and equipping the new spaces and orienting employees.
ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital-Mukwonago is located at 240 Maple Ave., near the intersection of Highway 83 and Interstate 43. It is easily accessible for patients from throughout Mukwonago and surrounding communities.
The new hospital will be the fourth in the ProHealth system. ProHealth currently provides inpatient services at ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital and ProHealth Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin in Waukesha.
