NorthLakes Community Clinic expands services

Superior Telegram

Following the 2013 merger of Lakes and North Woods community health centers to create NorthLakes Community Clinic, the new organization has expanded.

NorthLakes wanted to continue to meet the health care needs of the communities in Ashland, Hayward, Iron River, Minong and surrounding towns. In doing so, NorthLakes has added new services, new providers and more staff.

Also added were clinic locations and clinic space. Here are some of the changes that are having a major impact on our area.

In Ashland, there was an expansion — partially funded by a grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation — to the Children’s Clinic, gaining more behavioral health counseling space.

They also added two other clinic locations, the Vaughn Clinic and Third Street Clinic. Services in Ashland now include dental, behavioral health counseling, speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychiatric medication management and alcohol and other drug abuse counseling and services.

Hayward and Minong continue their strong dental and medical services but have also grown with additional providers and services. Behavioral health and substance abuse counseling, patient case management services and psychiatric medication management have been added in both communities. Physical therapy, osteopathic manipulation and patient prescription services have also been added in Minong. Prescriptions written by NorthLakes’ providers can be filled on site for their patients.

In Iron River, NorthLakes added new providers and services. In addition to medical, chiropractic, behavior health counseling and dental, they offer pediatric occupational therapy, a patient pharmacy, psychiatric medication management and AODA counseling and services. As in Minong, prescriptions written by NorthLakes’ providers can be filled for their patients.

NorthLakes is also proud of their Seal-A-Smile program offering sealants and fluoride treatments to students in more than 60 school locations.
