Medical Provider Member Updates

By Portage County Business Council

Below are updates we have received from some of our Medical Provider Members. Please contact them directly if any additional information is needed.

Family Health La Clinica

Family Health La Clinica’s five locations (Wautoma, Beaver Dam, Mauston, Friendship, Stevens Point) remain open to serve the community during this time with some modifications. We are serving existing patients, are accepting new patients, and are seeing patients on an interim basis who may not have current access to their primary medical care, behavioral health, or dental providers (for urgent/emergency services). All patients are screened over the phone and at the door. The clinical teams determine if it is appropriate for a face-to-face visit. You can reach any of our five locations by calling toll free at 1-800-942-5330.

Advanced Physical Therapy Associates

At Advanced Physical Therapy Associates we are committed to providing top level care in a safe environment. The PT profession has been called upon to help our fellow healthcare workers with triaging and treating musculoskeletal patients, and for injuries, post-operative care, acute sprains/strain and other painful conditions not allowing patients to complete their daily duties or self care. It is our hope that by continuing our services we may free up valuable hospital space for those needing specialized treatment.

APTA is closely monitoring and following the COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security in order to keep our clinics, patients and employees safe. However, if your patients are unable to make it into the clinic, we are offering Telehealth Services. During these unprecedented times we look forward to supporting you and your patients in any way that we can as we work together to serve our community. If there are any additional services we can offer to support you and your patients through these times, please do not hesitate to call us at 715-345-2126.

Marshfield Clinic

If you or an employee is concerned you may have COVID-19, stay home and reach out to Marshfield Clinic Health System before visiting your doctor’s office, urgent care or emergency department.

If you have symptoms like fever, new cough and new shortness of breath not due to chronic illness or allergies, or are concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, call the 24-hour Nurse Line at 1-800-549-3174, before visiting a doctor’s office, urgent care, hospital or emergency room. For general questions, call our information helpline at 877-988-0880, available 24/7.

We also have a blog posting about resources for businesses during COVID – 19. See the CCHA Toolkit:

Alzheimer’s Assocation

The Alzheimer’s Association is following guidance from local public health agencies related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. As a precaution, our staff and volunteers are working remotely. Despite this change, we want to reassure you that we are still working to support you and your loved ones. Aside from in-person meetings, virtually all Alzheimer’s Association programs and services are available to all Wisconsin families. Meetings, events and participation, both in internal and external activities, will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Please check for details on meetings and events.

Helpline: 24/7 Helpline is staffed by trained professionals 800.272.3900


At our Aspirus occupational health locations we continue to support the needs of our employer partners to keep our local, regional and our nation’s essential infrastructure going. This includes support during your hiring process for pre-employment testing, regulatory required testing and work related injury management.

We encourage you to call ahead to our Occupational Health Clinics to schedule appointments prior for all services so we can prepare you for the COVID-19 screening we will do prior and when your employee presents for care.

Stevens Point Orthopedics

We are now offering telehealth appointments for current and new patients. We realize that even though non-critical surgeries have been delayed, that doesn’t mean a patients’ pain has gone away. With a telehealth appointment, patients will still be able to see a provider and get answers to their questions, just virtually rather than in person.

We have a video posted to our Facebook page that shows patients how a virtual visit would work. We are still here for you  even if you don’t physically come into the clinic.

Behavioral Health Clinic

Behavioral Health Clinic is accepting new clients for therapy and testing using telehealth. We have 4 years of experience with online counseling. We see ages 2+ and no referral is necessary. 715-544-6144 or
