Prairie Lakes Healthcare System’s New Specialty Clinic Opens Monday

Oct 23, 2018 12:20AM ● By Alyssa McGinnis

Prairie Lakes is pleased to announce that the new Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic will open Monday, October 29. Prairie Lakes Healthcare System broke ground October 25, 2016 on a $40 million expansion project on the hospital campus in Watertown. The campus has seen significant changes over the past two years; including a new 65,000 square foot clinic building, an east entrance canopy, and helipad relocation.

Specialty services in the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic include cardiology (heart), dermatology (skin), general surgery, nephrology (kindey), pulmonology (lung), and urology.  The clinic includes a lab, adding convenience for many patients needing those services in conjunction with their clinic appointment.

Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and Glacial Lakes Orthopaedics also made the move to the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic to be on the same floor for patient convenience.  The rehabilitationtherapy department includes a state-of-the-art therapy pool. A notable feature of the future therapy pool is a lift that lowers patients slowly into the water without having to use steps.

A Public Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23. All from the region are invited to discover the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic in Watertown between 2:00 – 7:00 p.m. A program and ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m. will celebrate the completion of the expansion project.
