Froedtert ThedaCare Health, Inc. has commenced construction on a new hospital campus in Fond du Lac. The facility will be located at 755 W. Johnson St., the former site of the Younkers store at Forest Mall. A press conference was held on February 13th to announce the project, which is expected to be completed by 2025. The $35 million project will result in a smaller-scale, modern facility that offers 24/7 access to emergency, inpatient, and outpatient care.
Froedtert ThedaCare Health President Imran Andrabi explained during the groundbreaking that the goal of the new campus is to provide coordinated care close to home. Construction of the approximately 25,000-square-foot hospital will be completed by Miron Construction. This joint venture between Froedtert Health and ThedaCare aims to provide high-quality healthcare services in the Fond du Lac area.
In addition to the hospital, a temporary clinic has opened on Fond du Lac’s east side, with a permanent clinic currently under construction nearby. This venture in Fond du Lac is part of a larger initiative by Froedtert ThedaCare Health, which also includes plans for a hospital in Oshkosh. With this new development, residents of Fond du Lac and the surrounding area can look forward to enhanced healthcare services coming to their community in the near future.
