The new 296,000-square-foot Aurora Medical Center Mount Pleasant will be built on 86 acres near the northeast corner of Interstate 94 and Highway 20. It will be comprised of a 198,000-square-foot medical center and a 98,000-square-foot attached medical office building. The medical center will include 60 surgical and intensive care beds, four observation beds, five operating rooms, and two procedure rooms. The complex will offer inpatient care, surgical services, an emergency department with intended level-three trauma services as well as many other ancillary services including rehabilitation, imaging, laboratory and pharmacy.
The medical office portion of the site is to house a variety of outpatient services and approximately 24 specialty providers, sports medicine, rehabilitation services and a small conference center.
