OAK CREEK (WITI) — Oak Creek Mayor Steve Scaffidi has announced Froedtert Health plans to lease space for a significant primary and specialty care health center as part of the Drexel Town Square mixed use development in Oak Creek.

The new health center will become part of the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network, which includes eastern Wisconsin’s only academic medical center. The Froedtert & MCW network consists of 30 community clinics, a medical group, a Cancer Network and three hospitals, including its flagship hospital, Froedtert Hospital, which is MCW’s primary adult teaching affiliate.

“This announcement adds another significant partner to our new downtown at Drexel Town Square. This facility will offer residents of Oak Creek and the surrounding communities enhanced, convenient primary care, and also many of the specialty health care services for which Froedtert & MCW health network is renowned,” Mayor Scaffidi said.

“We’re pleased to be invited by the City of Oak Creek to be part of this exciting new downtown development. Our plans are still in the early stages, but I can say with complete confidence that we’re committed to providing health care services that respond to the needs and preferences of this community,” Cathy Jacobson, president and chief executive officer of Froedtert Health said.

HSA PrimeCare, the developer of the project, partners with some of the premier health care institutions in the nation to create development/ownership, project management, leasing, monetization, and property management real estate solutions that address the needs of today’s patients while satisfying the strategic and financial goals of the health system. HSA PrimeCare is a leading developer and owner of medical office buildings throughout the Midwest.

Froedtert Health joins previously announced occupants at Drexel Town Square that include the Oak Creek Public Library and City Hall, Water Street Brewery, Sheraton Four Points Hotel, a Meijer store, as well as residential communities planned by Barrett Visionary Development and Wired Properties.

    So jacobson, will you build another freestanding Emergency Department under the guise of releaving the volume of Froedtert’s Emergency Department in Oak Creek because people living there are likely to have insurance and can afford the higher fees you charge in an Emergency Department?? Why don’t you build a free standing Emergency Department in Milwaukee on the northwest side where it is truly needed after St. Michael’s closed years ago??? Oh yeah that’s right, wrong payer mix at that location right??? No insurance too many Title 19 patients which means big money loser for your pathetic health care organization. Yeah it’s all about providing health care where it’s needed….
