New name, same services for La Crosse clinic

Options Clinic changes name to Essential Health Clinic

An area clinic is getting a new start under a different name.

Options Clinic is re-launching as Essential Health Clinic, effective Monday.

Despite the change, they say they’ll be offering all of the same services they did under the old name. That includes annual exams, birth control and sexually-transmitted disease testing and treatment.

Chrissy Feine from Essential Health Clinic says they felt it was a good time to refresh their image and re-focus on their mission.

“Confidential care is essential and having the ability to go somewhere where you feel safe and heard as a patient is also essential, and reproductive healthcare is really essential to the overall health of a community, as well,” said Feine.

Essential Health Clinic provides services to more than 7000 people across seven locations in Western Wisconsin every year.
