Sauk Prairie Healthcare recently completed a four-month-long expansion and renovation project at its Hospital Campus in Prairie du Sac. The much-needed additional clinical space will enable more patients to access several important health services.

Urology Clinic

The new clinic features three exam rooms and two procedure rooms, enabling more patients to be seen each day. The clinic is served by Urologist Dr. Nathan Grunewald and Angie Sorg, APNP.

“Having grown up in Sauk Prairie, Dr. Grunewald and Angie know firsthand how important it is to be able to access high quality healthcare services close to home,” said Kim Beld, Vice President of Ambulatory and Medical Staff Services. “In addition to treating kidney stones, overactive bladder, incontinence, recurrent UTI, and a number of men’s health conditions, Dr. Grunewald also treats urologic cancers. If surgery at a Madison hospital becomes necessary, he can also work closely with that surgeon to manage the patient’s pre- and post-surgery needs locally, saving them lots of travel time to and from appointments.”

Wound Center

Sauk Prairie Healthcare and certified wound care provider Denise Cole-Ouzounian, APNP, began offering wound care in 2019 to provide specialized treatment to people suffering from chronic or non-healing wounds. Since that time, the service has been operating in temporary locations within the hospital as space allowed.

The clinic was also designed with extra wide hallways, doors and large bathrooms to make it easier for patients to navigate with large equipment that often accompanies them.

“We’re very excited to be able to give our wound care patients a more comfortable, private space for their treatments,” said Beld. “Our Wound Center team has been very focused on making treatment services more accessible locally and are currently collaborating with UW Health on a diabetes foot ulcer study with the goal of improving outcomes for rural patients who might not otherwise get care early enough to prevent amputation.”

Campus Clinic

Laura Bixby, APNP, is the clinic’s primary care provider. The clinic also houses employee health services for Sauk Prairie Healthcare’s team members.

“The Campus Clinic fills a big need for the established patients of our primary care clinics in Lodi, Plain, Spring Green, and Mazomanie,” explained Beld. “If they have an acute, urgent care need such as UTI, rash, sore throat, ear pain, cough, wound, or mild laceration, and their primary care provider doesn’t have openings that will work for the patient, we can get them scheduled for a same-day appointment at the Campus Clinic. It’s billed as a primary care visit, so it’s more cost effective than a walk-in Urgent Care visit in the Emergency Department.”

General Surgery Clinic

Sauk Prairie Healthcare’s Surgical Associates clinic gained additional space due to the relocation of the Urology Clinic.

“Our General Surgery providers, which include Dr. Ted Parins, Dr. Clay Dean, and Bob Volk PA-C, now have an additional procedure room, private consultation room, and another office,” described Beld. “We are looking to add a third surgeon to the practice, so more space is a welcome addition to the clinic.”

Infusion Services

Much like the Wound Center, Infusion Services has been operating for a few years in temporary locations within the hospital as space allowed. Infusion therapy, also known as IV therapy, puts a fluid or medication into a patient’s vein. Types of infusions include antibiotics, blood products, Covid monoclonal antibodies, fluid hydration, growth factors, biologics, and much more.

“We now have two more treatment spaces, for a total of four,” said Lisa Pickarts, Vice President of Patient Services/Chief Nursing Officer. “We’ve seen a 40 percent increase in patient visits from last year, so there’s a growing need for patients to be able to access these services locally. And many patients who need infusions are quite sick, so they really appreciate being able to get that care close to home.”
