Ascension Wisconsin will establish a micohospital in a 32,000-square-foot building in Waukesha, Wis., according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 

The hospital will be on the site of a former shopping center. It will have eight emergency beds and eight inpatient beds and offer X-ray and CT scan services. 

Ascension Wisconsin said it would reserve the second floor of the building for medical offices. 

The plan for the new microhospital was approved by the Waukesha Plan Commission this week, according to Greater Milwaukee News & Events. 

Ascension Wisconsin is the Glendale, Wis.- based branch of Ascension, a St. Louis-based Catholic hospital system that is one of the nation's largest.
