BizTimes Milwaukee: Froedtert Health plans new campus at former Wisconsin Heart Hospital

Froedtert Health plans to operate a new hospital campus at the former Wisconsin Heart Hospital in Wauwatosa.

The health system is planning to convert the shuttered building at 10000 W. Bluemound Road, which it bought for $25 million from Ascension Wisconsin in July 2018, into an inpatient hospital, according to plans submitted to the city. The hospital is expected to open in the fall.

The 7.6-acre campus is located about a mile from Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin’s flagship academic medical center campus at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center in Wauwatosa.

Floor plans indicate the first floor of the new facility would contain administration offices, a cafeteria, diagnostic imaging, a nursing unit, day surgery rooms and procedure rooms. The second floor would house inpatient rooms, a laboratory, a pharmacy, and physical therapy and surgical services.
