Several Aspirus clinics reopen
WAUSAU – Several Aspirus clinics have reopened, after a temporary closure in April to allow staff and providers to support operational and COVID-19 surge planning needs at other Aspirus locations.
The following are clinics have opened: Adams Clinic, Athens Clinic, Marathon Clinic, and Wittenberg Clinic.
Dates may vary by clinic, as staff and providers transition back to their previous locations. Patients will receive information related to these changes during scheduling, and through appointment reminders and other means.
“We are really excited to re-open these clinics and continue offering care to patients directly in their own communities,” said Vice President of Operations and Chief Nursing Officer Matt Brewer. “I’d like to thank our patients for being so understanding and flexible during a time that required us to temporarily adjust our operations to meet patient care needs at other locations in our system.”
“As these clinics reopen, they will do so using the same precautions as all other Aspirus locations to protect the health of patients and staff. Masks are required of all patients and visitors, who also will receive a temperature check and be asked if they have any symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19,” an Aspirus release said.
Patients can schedule appointments by calling their local clinic.
All Aspirus locations also continue to seek cloth mask donations. These donations help preserve PPE supplies for health care workers and are welcomed by anyone willing to donate.
