Meeting the Needs of the Community

Designed to meet the health care needs of one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Wisconsin, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare - Franklin, a 275,000 square foot facility, opened its doors initially as an outpatient facility with the capacity to expand into a full-service hospital in 2008. As the needs of the Franklin and Oak Creek communities evolved, so has the hospital.

In 2010, a six-bed Intensive Care Unit opened, bringing the total number of private inpatient rooms to 32. Franklin is now a full-fledged hospital with 24/7 emergency care, surgical services, radiology, rehabilitation, lab, retail pharmacy, café and a walk-in clinic. In addition, Franklin is home to more than 30 primary and specialty care physicians.

The building itself is designed to provide a soothing, comforting atmosphere because we believe that calm surroundings have a positive impact on your ability to heal. Every detail in our hospital was designed with your comfort in mind with lots of natural light, comfortable furniture, and expansive ceilings. And our patient satisfaction scores have ranked consistently in the top 10 percent in the nation since we opened our doors, making Franklin your choice for your family’s total health care needs.

Medical Office Building

In June 2013, we opened a three-story medical office building on the grounds of the campus, which houses our primary care and specialty physician offices and our walk-in clinic.
