WAUKESHA – Sunset Drive has received another dose of health care services.
ProHealth Care Medical Group opened its newest clinic May 2 adjacent to the city’s largest modern commercial district, which includes the Shoppes at Fox River, expanding the healthcare provider’s services into the southwest part of the city also recently targeted by other medical firms.
The 10,000-square-foot clinic is part of ProHealth’s strategic efforts to bring its services closer to populous areas in addition to its major medical facilities, such as ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital.
“We strive to provide care close to where people live and work, so we continually evaluate opportunities to better serve the community through additional care sites,” the health care provider said in a 2021 statement. “Sunset Drive remains a busy retail corridor. Our new clinic there, providing both primary care and urgent care, will be a convenient location for many of our patients.”
The new clinic has 17 exam rooms and a treatment room and offers primary and urgent care as well as laboratory and imaging services. Urgent care is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays on a walk-in basis or through online reservations at ProHealthCare.org/UrgentCare.
For now, the facility is being staffed by Dr. Stephanie McDearmon, a family medicine physician, who is accepting new patients of all ages with a focus on those trying to manage chronic conditions or just maintain their health. Additional providers will be added in the future as demand dictates, ProHealth Care said.
The clinic, which faces Sunset Drive, is accessible off Spring City Drive and includes a sheltered drop-off area on the north side of the building.
It joins an even larger medical facility, Ascension Wisconsin Hospital – Waukesha, which opened in late 2021 in what was previously the site of Waukesha’s last remaining Sentry Foods store at the now-redeveloped Fox Run center off Sunset Drive and St. Paul Avenue.
Ascen “micro-hospital” is a two-floor, 32,000-square-foot facility with an emergency room and also offers routine medical services.
Sunset Drive also has other health care centers further east, including a quick-help clinic inside CVS Pharmacy at the Shoppes of Fox River and Froedtert’s FastCare Walk-in Clinic inside Meijer.
Construction on a previously announced Froedtert Health clinic, a 6,000-square-foot plan, at Sunset Drive and Genesee Road has not yet begun. Plans were approved in 2019.
