The new Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Drexel Town Square Health Center developed by HSA PrimeCare will bring an unprecedented level of healthcare services as well as nearly 150 new jobs to Oak Creek and surrounding communities.

Slated to open next fall, the 109,000-square-foot health center will offer a complete spectrum of services under one roof, from primary care and urgent care to an outpatient surgery center and a cancer center. Fourteen doctors are expected to practice at the Drexel Town Square location when it opens, including 10 specialists representing 13 different specialty care areas. In addition, occupational health services and support services including laboratory, imaging and pharmacy will be available. HSA PrimeCare is responsible for development of the state-of-the-art facility as well as an adjacent 425-space parking deck.

“People tell us they want high quality care that’s convenient and fits their lives. We strive to provide the right care in the right place at the right time, and Drexel Town Square Health Center is designed to deliver on that,” said Mark Lodes, MD, president, Froedtert & MCW Community Physicians. “Many of our patients come from the Oak Creek, South Milwaukee, Caledonia and Racine County areas, and this location will be a comprehensive, close-to-home option with a streamlined connection to the Froedtert & MCW academic medical center if needed.”

“We are excited with the opportunity to partner with Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin to bring world-class healthcare services in a convenient neighborhood setting for the residents of Oak Creek and south suburban Milwaukee,” said Dan Miranda, president of HSA Commercial.

Plans for the Froedtert & MCW health network to join the Drexel Town Square development were announced in early 2015. According to Lodes, the Froedtert & MCW planning team studied the community’s needs and took a thoughtful, measured approach to determine the appropriate services to offer. He said details may change since the health center’s opening date is a year away, but the comprehensive lineup of services planned for the Froedtert & MCW Drexel Town Square Health Center includes:

  • Primary care: family and pediatric medicine with extended appointment hours; obstetrics and gynecology
