OCONOMOWOC, Wis.Wangard Partners Inc. (Wangard), a Milwaukee-based full-service real estate company, and the Clement J. Zablocki VA Health Care System announced that a Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic will be part of the development of Olympia Fields.

The new 8,500-square-foot VA facility at 1289 Olympia Fields Drive expands access to VA care for Veterans in Milwaukee’s western suburbs and provides another convenient option where they can receive outpatient services.

Veterans will have access to a variety of services including primary care, mental health and women’s health at the new facility, which the VA hopes to occupy by the end of 2023 after a spring groundbreaking. The Oconomowoc location includes the convenience of many nearby amenities for Veterans and staff as well as easy highway access, while expanding the Milwaukee-based Zablocki VA Health Care System’s footprint to the Lake Country area.

Oconomowoc will join Appleton, Cleveland, Green Bay and Union Grove as community-based outpatient clinics in the Zablocki VA Health Care System. The system’s main campus as well as inpatient and other outpatient treatment programs are headquartered in Milwaukee.

“We are thrilled to be expanding world-class care for our Veterans into Oconomowoc and western Waukesha County,” said Dr. Staci Williams, the Zablocki VA Health Care System’s acting director. “We are always seeking ways to better connect and expand access to care for those who so honorably served our country. This new location in Oconomowoc will allow us to increase access to VA services and ensure Veterans living in the area can easily and conveniently receive the care they need.”

“We are proud to announce the exciting news of our long-term partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This development marks an important milestone for the revitalization of the area and expands access to critical health care services for our local Veterans,” said Stewart Wangard, CEO and Chairman of Wangard Partners.

“Wangard Partners strongly believes in the value that this development brings to the community of Oconomowoc, speaking not only of the services the VA provides, but as a catalyst for the future of Olympia Fields and Oconomowoc. We are honored to have played a part in bringing this project to fruition and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on our community.”

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs clinic will join several other health care providers in making Olympia Fields a health care hub supported by two area hospitals.
