New Medical Clinic in Menomonee Falls
Menomonee Falls, Wis. (Feb. 11, 2008) — Beginning Feb. 18, people in the Menomonee Falls area will have convenient access to an exciting new medical campus where a broad spectrum of healthcare needs will be within easy reach.
Community Memorial Medical Commons at North Hills, located south of Good Hope Road along Appleton Avenue, will offer top quality medical expertise and comprehensive care as well as proximity to Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls. The first phase of the campus to open on Feb. 18 will be the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin North Hills Primary Care Clinic, which offers the services of physicians from the Medical College of Wisconsin. The medical staff includes obstetrician and gynecologist Elizabeth Baron-Kuhn, MD, and internal medicine physicians Kamlesh Kurre, MD, and Michael Schatzman, MD. Chitra Bhosekar, MD, also an internal medicine physician, will join the medical staff later in the spring. To make an appointment with Dr. Baron-Kuhn, Dr. Kurre or Dr. Schatzman, call 262-253-2510.
Also beginning on Feb. 18, Dynacare Laboratories will offer a wide variety of clinical laboratory services and the Center for Diagnostic Imaging will provide sophisticated medical imaging services.
In the future, the Medical Commons will add physicians and services from specialties including urgent care, orthopaedics and endocrinology.
“We are delighted to be able to make the expertise of these physicians from our academic medical center available in the community,” said Peter Pruessing, Froedtert & Community Health Senior Vice President for External Affairs and Strategic Development. “The new Froedtert & the Medical College primary and specialty care clinics and other services at the North Hills campus are a great asset for the people of Menomonee Falls.”
In May, Community Memorial’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs will also move to the Medical Commons campus, along with the Froedtert & Community Health Workforce Health Program.
“Our local residents have the choice to see a physician at the Community Memorial Medical Commons and, if needed, travel just a few minutes to Community Memorial Hospital for inpatient care,” said William Bestor, President and CEO of Community Memorial Hospital. “Community Memorial has served our community for more than 40 years. Our commitment to patient care comes first and this new clinic brings greater access to health services for our patients.”
Community Memorial Hospital, which specializes in cardiac care, women’s health, cancer care and advanced surgical procedures, is a member of Froedtert & Community Health.
