VERONA, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin-based electronic medical records company has unveiled expansion plans featuring new buildings reminiscent of the fictional Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter movies.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports Epic Systems Corp.'s fourth campus in Verona will be called the Wizards Academy Campus. The company's plans are up for a vote Monday by the city's planning commission.
Epic's chief administration officer Stephen Dickmann wrote in a letter to Verona officials that the buildings with steeples and castle-like notched parapets are meant to look like buildings in Cambridge and Oxford in England.
The five buildings on the campus will hold 300 to 350 offices each, with nearly 1,600 offices in all.
Epic employs 6,800 people split between its three existing campuses in Verona and its former headquarters in Madison.
