The newly remodeled Fort HealthCare Jefferson clinic opened in August at its permanent location, 840 West Racine Street in Jefferson. The new clinic is a modern space capable of supporting up to three full time providers practicing at the same time and has a procedure room, new imaging equipment and a small lab area on-site for extra convenience. The clinic’s construction was managed by Stevens Construction Corp., which uses a variety of subcontractors that are specialized in certain areas. Every effort was made to use local vendors and contractors when possible.
Linda Welniak, MD, Noreen Lyons, APNP and Joshua Tueting, APNP continue to provide care for Jefferson and other area residents at the clinic. All providers are accepting new patients, and same day appointments are available for urgent care issues. Individuals may make an appointment at the clinic by calling 920-674-6000.
