SSM Health Breaks Ground on New Outpatient Center in Sun Prairie

June 4, 2024

Earlier today, SSM Health celebrated a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new outpatient center in Sun Prairie. The approximately 90,000 square foot facility will allow the health care provider to better meet the needs of the growing Madison metro.

“Sun Prairie is a thriving city that attracts people from a number of surrounding communities. We are invested in growing with it,” says Sue Anderson, Regional President of SSM Health in Wisconsin. “This new outpatient center will alleviate some of the growing constraints we face at our SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison campus and allow us to open access for more timely care when and where our patients need it.” 

The project is more than just a new building, it is a long-standing commitment to Sun Prairie and the surrounding communities, bringing additional health care access, as well as stable and secure employment to the area.  

"Kahler Slater partnered with SSM Health to design a building with future resilience, a focus on staff wellbeing and patient experience leveraging WELL principles and an operationally efficient care team model,” says Melinda Pogwizd, AIA, Kahler Slater Project Designer. “The project site includes a robust solar array, a half-mile walking path and 100+ year old legacy trees were maintained in the planning. We are proud to work with a client that has invested wholeheartedly in exceptional patient care and has sustainability top of mind.”  

Opening in 2025, the Sun Prairie Outpatient Center will offer surgical orthopedics care, as well as comprehensive eye care services. Kahler Slater and J.H. Findorff & Son, Inc. are partnered to design and deliver this project.
