The Milwaukee Bucks and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network have announced an expansion of their community partnership to include developing two new health-oriented facilities within the new downtown Milwaukee arena district.
A state-of-the-art Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center, buy | which will serve as the new practice and training facility for the Milwaukee Bucks, will combine the Bucks’ medical team with Froedtert & MCW’s leading physicians and researchers to work on player care and sports science research.
“Today’s announcement is a reflection of the bold vision we share with our partners at Froedtert & MCW for how to build a healthier and more vibrant community in Milwaukee,” Bucks President Peter Feigin said. “Through our shared resources and expertise, we will not only set a new standard for player care and provide our athletes with a world-class facility befitting of our championship aspirations on the court, but we will continue to provide much-needed resources to the surrounding community and contribute to cutting-edge research that will change the landscape of sports science.”
“As promised when we announced our partnership a month ago, we are deeply committed to making a significant, sustainable difference in Milwaukee,” said Cathy Jacobson, president and CEO of Froedtert Health. “We are proud to bring a new health center to people who live in this area and honored to offer Froedtert & MCW’s deep expertise in medical care and research to both the community and the Bucks. This is an extraordinary project with tremendous potential to move our city forward.”
