Construction begins on “UW Health Union Corners” Clinic


Thursday’s groundbreaking ceremony will be held at UW Health Union Corners Clinic at 2402 Winnebago St. The clinic will replace UW Health East Towne Clinic and its urgent care services.

It will house a pharmacy, social services, mental-health care, and laboratory for imaging and health and nutrition education. The new clinic will house general internal medicine, pediatrics, adolescent medicine, and obstetrics & gynecology.

UW Health Union Corners has implemented a new Yellow Rain Boots emergency surge program Thursday. This includes evaluating whether primary care appointments could be delayed until spring 2021.

According to health care providers, this plan will ensure that patients receive the best possible care and protect staff and patients. According to a news release, the changes will also help  to manage the high number of COVID-19-related patients and the arrival of respiratory care season.

UW Health Union Corners stated that this could mean asking patients to reschedule their appointments for a later time or offering them another option such as a virtual appointment.

Patients with respiratory symptoms should contact their primary care provider first, according to health care workers. The nurse will help the patient determine if they require a test for COVID-19, a video visit, or an in-person appointment. UW Health Union Corners explained that if an in-person appointment is required, they will schedule patients at one the six designated respiratory care centers. Patients must call their primary care clinic first.
