The new Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Milwaukee opens Fall 2010!

Opening in 2010, this ground-breaking project consolidates Columbia St. Mary’s Columbia and current Lake Drive campuses into one. The new Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Milwaukee will provide the blueprint for healthcare transformation in our community.

The evidence-based design of our new East Side hospital will improve patient outcomes, increase patient satisfaction and aid in the recruitment and retention of top quality staff. In addition, the consolidation will lead to $19 million in annual savings to the organization leading to more affordable health care for everyone.

Help us go "Above and Beyond!"

Columbia St. Mary’s Foundation is committed to helping the new East Side hospital go “Above and Beyond” by funding advanced treatments and technologies, as well as enhancements to create an exceptional patient experience. Make a gift!
