Aurora Chosen as Preferred Provider for Workers on 2 Major State Road Projects

MILWAUKEE, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora Health Care has been selected to be the preferred provider for employees working on two major state roadwork projects.


Preferred provider status means workers who are injured are steered to Aurora Health Care's Occupational Health during day hours and Aurora hospital emergency rooms after hours.

"Aurora was the preferred provider for the Marquette Interchange project, and we were asked to serve in that role again for these two projects because we did such a good job," said Mary Jo Capodice, D.O., medical director of Occupational Health for Aurora.

These projects will involve three times the number of workers than on the four-year Marquette project, she said. That project, in downtown Milwaukee, ran from 2004 to 2008.

The two projects, which start this year and will take seven years each to complete, are:

  • Thirty-five miles of I-94, From the Mitchell Interchange to the Illinois state line. This project has already begun with construction on S. 27th Street entrance ramps. For more information, click on

"We are really pleased to have been chosen again as the preferred provider, as this demonstrates the confidence the state has in us to provide excellent patient care," Dr. Capodice said.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers services at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
