GET COVID STATS HERE

Don’t turn to far flung news sources for what’s happening with COVID in our area. The best info on COVID dangers in Wisconsin comes from our own hospitals. And an even better indicator than the number of cases (which depends on the number of people being tested) is the number of COVID-19 patients hospitalized per day. This is always an important number, regardless of how many people are being tested. Click here to find current hospitalization figures as well as the updated graph showing the trends on the Wisconsin Hospital Association’s dashboard.

EMERGENCY AND URGENT CARE

Do not call 911 for general COVID-19 symptoms. Dial 911 only if you’re having severe difficulty breathing or another life-threatening emergency.

Do not come to our Emergency Department or Urgent Care for COVID-19 testing or for vaccines. We have a separate Testing and Vaccine Clinic for those purposes. The clinic is located just inside our clinic (Gold) Entrance at 1450 East Side Road and is currently open Monday through Friday from 7:00am – 1:00pm.

PHARMACY: CURB-SIDE PICK-UP AND FREE DELIVERY

For the safety of our patients and staff, the business office will be suspending in-person financial counseling. Please call 608-342-4717 with billing questions or to make a payment. Thank you!
