Breaking Ground at Aurora Six Points

Ground was broken this week for Aurora’s new, 30,000-square-foot clinic within the Six Points development in West Allis. Located at the corner of West Greenfield Avenue and Six Points Crossing, the new facility will offer primary and specialty care, urgent care, as well as pharmacy, laboratory, and medical imaging space. It will use a new “collaborative care model” allowing multiple caregivers to offer patients a variety of services in a single exam room, in one extended appointment. The facility will open in the fall of 2018.
