HGA and Progressive Community Health Centers Break Ground on New Clinic

11.15.13

Construction has begun on the new Lisbon Avenue Health Center near Washington Park in Milwaukee. Designed by HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA) for Progressive Community Health Centers (PCHC), the clinic will provide family medical services for nearly 18,000 residents within the city's medically underserved west side.

"Progressive Community Health Centers has become widely recognized for their positive presence in the community and their progress toward bridging the area's healthcare-service gap," said Scott Lindvall, AIA, vice president and principal with HGA in Milwaukee. "The Lisbon Avenue Health Center will enable PCHC to strengthen its community commitment with medical services that address diverse neighborhood needs."

Based on a master plan by HGA, the 42,600-square-foot, three-story clinic will be nearly five times the size of the existing clinic directly next door. Services will include family medicine, internal medicine, women's health, dental, diagnostic radiology and health education. PCHC also plans to add integrated behavioral health services to its scope of practice in its new space. The existing clinic, which will remain operational during construction, will be demolished for parking once the replacement clinic is complete in December 2014.
