Mayo Clinic Health System to reopen Holmen Clinic, Respiratory Clinic
HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) – Mayo Clinic Health System will be resuming services at the Holmen Clinic family medicine practice on June 1. The clinic will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lab and radiology services will also be available.
The facility transitioned into a Respiratory Clinic in April with Holmen-based staff relocating to the Onalaska Clinic to continue seeing patients. The Respiratory Clinic will now continue to operate in the lower level of the Holmen Clinic, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend hours have been discontinued.
“Safety measures have been put into place to prevent any potential virus transmission from the Respiratory Clinic to other patients in the building, including a separate entrance for respiratory patients on the lower level, strict social distancing guidelines, and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE),” says Brad Weber, Mayo Clinic Health System administrator. “In addition, the building has two separate ventilation systems – one for the lower level and one for the main floor, isolating airflow in the respective areas.”
Mayo Clinic Health System is reminding patients who show any sign of possible COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), to call first before going to a health care facility in person.
“We look forward to seeing our patients in person in the Holmen clinic. Mayo Clinic Health System has implemented numerous safety measures, including robust patient screening, universal masking and enhanced cleaning of patient care, staff and waiting spaces,” says Joannie Schmidt, Mayo Clinic Health System Holmen Clinic Manager.
Patients can visit the Mayo Clinic Health System COVID-19 online resource site for contact information and the most up-to-the-minute information about COVID-19 and what to do if you have symptoms, unrelated health care needs, or need to visit someone at the clinic or hospital.
