Froedtert, MCW open acute-care community hospital

Froedtert Health and the Medical College of Wisconsin opened an acute-care community hospital Jan. 31 called Froedtert Community Hospital-Oak Creek (Wis.). 

The 17,000-square-foot hospital is open 24/7, according to a Jan. 31 news release. It has a seven-bed emergency department and eight inpatient beds, as well as laboratory, pharmacy and imaging services.

It is the system's third community hospital.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced that access to safe, high-quality care close to home has never been more important for our patients and the diverse communities we serve," said Cathy Jacobson, president and CEO of Froedtert. "The addition of our third community hospital location furthers our health network's mission of expanding access to academic medicine and will provide much-needed capacity for our hospitals that continue to experience record-setting admissions and hospitalizations."
