Aurora Healthcare on Monday broke ground on its new, 30-thousand square foot facility in West Allis. 

The building, at Six Points Crossing and Greenfield Ave., will replace Aurora's existing West Allis clinic. 

When the facility is finished, Aurora Healthcare plans to employ up to 15 new workers. 

"When you can help revitalize a community and do something not only for that community but for our patients and our caregivers, it's always a great day," said Steve Francaviglia, President of the Greater Milwaukee South Patient Service Market. 

The medical office will offer primary and specialty care, urgent care, as well as pharmacy, laboratory, and medical imaging space. 

It'll use a collaborative care model, allowing multiple caregivers to offer patients a variety of services in a single exam room and in one, extended appointment. 

The new Aurora clinic will be just one part of the planned Market at Six Points mixed use development in West Allis, which Mayor Dan Devine said is a more than $60-million project. 

Milwaukee-based Mandel Group is in charge of the redevelopment, which also calls for apartments, restaurants and retail in the area. 

"It will improve the tax base and it'll also improve people living in this community and spending money in this community," Devine said.
