Prairie Lakes Breaks Ground on New Specialty Clinic

Oct 30, 2016 08:55AM ● By Alex Strauss
Prairie Lakes Healthcare System has broken ground on a new specialty clinic set to open in two years. The clinic is the result of a decision made by the Board of DIrectors more than a decade ago to build specialty medical and surgical services in Watertown.


 
The new Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic will eventually be home to many services already offered by Prairie Lakes Healthcare System but will also add much-needed space for future growth. Prairie Lakes has grown from one employed specialty physician in 2003 to 21 in 2016. Today, Prairie Lakes physicians operate 17 outreach clinics in surrounding communities.


 
“Many of our services, like dermatology and interventional cardiology, are rare to find in our type of service area,” says President and CEO, Jill Fuller. “Prairie Lakes Healthcare System needs additional space to accommodate service growth. The Specialty Clinic building will be a great addition to our campus.”
 


The helipad will also relocate to the roof of the clinic, which will be adjacent to the emergency department and radiology services..The new clinic is expected to be complete by the Fall of 2018.
