Aspirus Temporarily Closes Clinics Due To Covid-19

Aspirus has made the difficult decision to close clinics around Wisconsin and Michigan to better serve the community at their hospitals during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Aspirus has made the decision to temporarily close some clinics during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Aspirus clinics in the following locations will be closed or begin the process of closing until further notice:

  • Adams
  • Athens
  • Birnamwood
  • Bruce Crossing, Mich.
  • Crystal Falls, Mich.
  • Edgar
  • Gilman
  • Hurley
  • Lake Linden, Mich.
  • Marathon
  • Nekoosa
  • Prentice
  • Rib Lake
  • Rome
  • Three Lakes
  • Wittenberg

“The decision to close locations, even on a temporary basis, is not an easy one but it is necessary in order to continue providing access to primary and specialty care in the safest way possible for our staff and patients,” said Matt Brewer, Vice President of Operations and Chief Nursing Officer of Aspirus Medical Group. “Closing these locations allows us to use staff and resources where they are needed most and ensure our hospitals are staffed appropriately to care for our communities during a possible surge in COVID-19 activity.”

Primary and specialty care will still be available at other clinics in North Central Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Anyone with an appointment previously scheduled at one of these locations will be contacted to reschedule or move their appointment to another clinic.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
