Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam Opens COVID-19 Clinic

(Beaver Dam) Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam has opened a new COVID-19 clinic aimed at providing ongoing screening, testing and symptom management. A person will be directed to the clinic by a medical professional following an over-the-phone screening to determine if they need to be tested for coronavirus. Clinic staff will then work with patients by providing guidelines for quarantine, in-clinic symptom management or a recommendation to seek emergency care for those with acute symptoms. Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam Administrative Officer Angelia Foster says having a dedicated COVID-19 clinic allows them to effectively identify and care for those with the disease. Adding that it will also allow their emergency departments to focus its resources on the most critically ill and injured patients. The clinic will not accept walk-ins, anyone with symptoms should call 877-988-0022 first. Hospital officials say the clinic does not replace their drive-thru testing site which is now open to all citizens who meet the screening requirements. The clinic is also available to everyone.
