Aurora Health Care to build new, larger clinic in NeenahMonday, November 29, 2004
Success of current clinic allows for expanded services
NEENAH, Wis., The physicians of Aurora Health Care in Neenah announced plans today to move from their existing leased space into a new, larger building that will allow for expanded services and greater comfort and convenience for patients and their families.
“This beautiful new clinic will allow us to enhance the care we provide for our patients in the Neenah area,” said Brian Goldshlack, M.D., a family practice physician in Neenah since 2002. “This expansion of services is an example of the success of this current clinic.”
The new Aurora Health Center will be built in the Westowne Village development, near the intersection of Highway 41 and Winneconne Avenue. It will encompass 38,500 square feet on five acres of land.
“By deciding to build in Westowne Village, Aurora Health Care has chosen a wonderful location from which to serve its patients,” said Robert Buckingham, community development director for the City of Neenah. “The combination of restaurants, retail shops, consumer services and health care will provide a powerful business mix for the community to benefit from.”
In addition to offering more space for primary care, the new clinic will allow for new or expanded specialty care, a range of diagnostic testing and imaging services, a laboratory, physical therapy, a retail pharmacy and a walk-in clinic for immediate care.
“When you can see your doctor, receive your tests and have your prescription filled all in one place, it makes the process of receiving health care just a little bit less stressful,” Dr. Goldshlack said. “The addition of a walk-in clinic will help those patients that want to see a doctor with minor, but urgent needs, that can’t wait until a next-day appointment.”
Four physicians now practice at the existing Aurora Health Center at 1370 S. Commercial Street, supported by a staff of eight. The new building will enable recruitment of new physicians to the community and will accommodate a number of specialists who will see patients in Neenah on a regular schedule.
Construction is expected to begin this month, and the new health center will open in the summer of 2005.
Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of care. Aurora offers care at sites in more than 80 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
