Surgery center, clinics in Walworth County part of Aurora's $100 million plans
ELKHORN--A new outpatient surgery center, two new clinics in Walworth County, and upgrades to Aurora Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhorn and Memorial Hospital of Burlington are part of a $100 million investment Aurora Health Care is making in Walworth and Racine counties, according to a story in the Business Journal.
Aurora is planning to build a new ambulatory surgery center on a 70-acre parcel near Wisconsin highways 36 and 11. The site was chosen for its accessibility for patients living near the two major highways, according to Lisa Just, market president for Aurora in Burlington and Walworth County.
Just said timing for the project will be determined after a six-month planning process.
Additionally planned as part of a combined $70 million investment to the area by Aurora are an urgent care center in Delavan and a new clinic in a yet-to-be-determined site in Walworth County.
Aurora is also planning $30 million to upgrade the infrastructures at its hospitals in Elkhorn and Burlington.
Last year, Aurora Health Care announced that labor and baby delivery services would be ending at Memorial Hospital of Burlington. Instead, labor and delivery would be performed at Aurora Lakeland.
