Groundbreaking for the Ascension Racine Medical Center in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, is planned for early February.

The Ascension Racine Medical Center is part of a multiyear, multipronged ambulatory strategy to build a robust primary care and ambulatory network throughout Ascension Wisconsin.

Demolition of an old Floortech Interiors building on the site, started in mid-January, is now complete. The Mount Pleasant Plan Commission approved plans for the $42 million, two-story, 72,000-square-foot medical center in mid-December.

Along with primary, specialty and urgent care, the state-of-the-art center will offer occupational medicine, pain management, an imaging center and an ambulatory surgery center. The project is on schedule with plans of opening in early 2020.
