Marshfield Clinic Health System is a member of the Wisconsin Technology Council.

Marshfield Clinic Health System today announced it is opening urgent care services at Marshfield Clinic Lake Hallie Center in the coming months to help address the expected influx of patients seeking emergent and urgent care services in the Chippewa Valley.

Lake Hallie Center is conveniently located between Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls off of Highway 53. Its location makes it a natural first step in expanding urgent care access in the region. Urgent care is available for injuries and illnesses, like minor cuts that need stitches or ear infections, that are not life threatening but need care fast. Additionally, urgent care locations will see people when traveling, especially in tourist areas, because their primary care provider is not available.

“Increasing urgent care capacity in the Chippewa Valley will provide some much-needed relief in the coming months to community members looking for convenient alternatives,” said Marshfield Health System’s West Market President Brad Groseth. “Expanded urgent care access in the region will help decrease patient volumes in local emergency departments, as well as provide hours that might be more convenient for working families in the area.”
