The Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin The health network plans to open a new primary care clinic on the south side of Milwaukee. The clinic is slated for a former CVS store, located at the intersection of West Historic Mitchell Street and West Forest Home Avenue, and is expected to open in late June 2023, according to plans submitted to the Milwaukee Historic Preservation Commission. The one-story, 16,500 square foot building located at 1316 W. Forest Home Ave. is owned by El Rey Properties LLC, a subsidiary of the Milwaukee-based company. Hispanic grocery store chain. Froedtert & MCW would occupy 75% of the building, and a “bank tenant” would take over the remaining 2,420 square feet on the southeast side, according to the drawings. The clinic would house a residency training program for physicians. Froedtert hired in Milwaukee Eppstein Uhen Architects design the interior layout, which would include 16 examination rooms; 10 office spaces; two central care team spaces; two training rooms for doctors/residents; a behavioral health consultation room; a laboratory and blood collection area; a multipurpose conference and training room that can accommodate up to 25 people; and a registration and waiting room. Plans for the exterior of the building include new windows and entrances. Because the building is located in the Mitchell Street Historic District, the project requires a certificate of suitability from the city’s Historic Preservation Commission.

The proposed hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. The site is located one block from a new Wisconsin for kids clinic at 1432 W. Forest Home Ave., which opened in June. This facility replaced and expanded the services Children’s had previously provided in a space at the Sixteenth Street Community Health Center at 1032 S.
