KOHLER — Aurora Health Care released a conceptual design with the Village of Kohler for the construction of a replacement hospital.

The new hospital complex includes a outpatient surgery center and medical office building immediately east of Interstate 43 in the Village of Kohler.

“We’re excited to unveil this design for a state-of-the-art facility that, when built, will be one of the most advanced in Wisconsin,” said Dave Graebner, president of Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center. “The design is forward-looking, reflecting the way care is provided today and will be provided in the future.”

The design is intended to make the most of the natural surroundings, with the hospital built into the landscape, providing a calming, healing atmosphere for patients. The chosen location is a 56-acre parcel located north of Union Avenue and west of South Taylor Drive.

In October, the Kohler Village Board approved a predevelopment agreement with Aurora. Aurora is aiming to open the facility to patients in 2021. The new hospital would replace the aging Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center.
