Aurora announces Valley View rennovations

Thursday, May 31, 2007

Aurora Health Care announced today that it will renovate the Valley View campus of Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center.

While several services that had been offered at the Valley View site have moved to the new Aurora Health Center on Kiley Way, outpatient surgery procedures will continue to be offered at Valley View. The renovations will include the remodeling of pre- and post-surgical patient rooms, updates to the patient registration and lobby areas, and the move of Aurora Sheboygan Memorial's Sleep Disorders Center to Valley View.

"The Valley View project -- in conjunction with the opening of the new Aurora Health Center -- ensures that patients will have access to services that will meet a majority of their health care needs right here in Plymouth for years to come," said Dan Bonk, executive vice president of Aurora's central region. "As more and more of the specialists from the Aurora Sheboygan Clinic see patients at the new Aurora Health Center in Plymouth, there will be greater demand for surgical services in this community, and the work we are doing at Valley View will allow us to meet those needs."

Valley View's experienced team of surgeons, anesthesia and nursing staff provide an extensive range of surgeries, including:

  • knee and shoulder arthroscopy
  • other outpatient orthopedic surgery
  • cataract surgery
  • tonsil, adenoid, nasal and sinus surgery
  • gall bladder and hernia surgery
  • facial and plastic surgery
  • gastrointestinal scope procedures

Sleep studies, used to diagnose sleep disorders, will be offered at the Valley View campus upon completion of the project. Aurora Sheboygan Memorial now has 4 sleep study rooms, which will move to the Valley View campus.

The renovation project is expected to begin in June and to be complete later this summer.

The new Aurora Health Center opened May 22. In addition to replacing the Aurora Sheboygan Clinic on Eastern Avenue, the new clinic offers diagnostic testing, offices for specialty physicians, a community resource library, a retail pharmacy and an Aurora Vision Center. The Aurora Rehabilitation Center, which had been located in its own building on the Valley View campus, is also located in the new building.

A community open house is planned for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, June 2. The free event will include tours, entertainment, food and a special appearance by Green Bay wide receiver Donald Driver, beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers services at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
