WATCH NOW: Pleasant Prairie Aurora Health Center Achieved a Number of Goals Early in Year Two | Local News


John Bradshaw, representative of Stryker Corporation, describes the system used in the operating rooms at Aurora Health Center, 12500 Aurora Drive, Pleasant Prairie.

PLEASANT PRAIRIE – It’s been a little over a year since the village’s Aurora Health Center opened to the public.

And in the midst of a pandemic, the facility has achieved a number of its goals to date.

Several Aurora Trustees, led by Donna Jamieson, President of Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, recently briefed the public with a tour of the facility, 12500 Aurora Drive.

“One of the important things for us with the opening of this facility is that we really wanted to provide better access to specialist care and outpatient surgery in this community,” said Jamieson. “We know that with the growth of the community and the number of residents and businesses moving into the community, there would be more need to access this care.

“With that in mind, we’ve actually identified some specialties, as well as primary care services, to make sure we provide that access to that care. “

The 200,000-square-foot facility has 26 physicians on-site, Jamieson said, along with 14 to 15 others who have offices at other Aurora sites and rotate at different facilities.

Jake Perotto, physiotherapist at Aurora Health Center, 12500 Aurora Drive, Pleasant Prairie, explains one of the processes the facility uses to rehabilitate injuries with its patients.

Specialties on the clinical side include urology and men’s health; orthopedics, including chiropractic care; general surgery, which includes plastic surgery; and children’s health, which also includes certain sub-specialties.
