WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN – The OakLeaf Medical Network is opening new clinics throughout West Central Wisconsin as it looks to fill the healthcare gap left when Prevea and Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) shut down their hospitals and clinics earlier this year.

New clinics include:

  • OakLeaf Clinic Ladysmith at 1101 Lake Ave. – Rusk County purchased the former Prevea clinic building and is leasing the facility to OakLeaf Clinics for five years. Physicians Joel DeKrey, Samantha Runstrom and Amanda Crabb and the trio’s medical staff will serve as providers at the Ladysmith location. The clinic offers the same primary, family medicine, women’s health, physical therapy and X-ray services as the previous Prevea clinic did. In addition, OakLeaf Medical Network clinics will offer endocrinology, cardiology, urology, OB/GYN, general surgery and podiatry outreach services at the Ladysmith clinic.
  • OakLeaf Clinic Rice Lake (1024 N. Main St.) – Bailey Yeager and Kaley Wilson, who previously worked at Prevea Health Rice Lake, will serve as providers. “I am excited and grateful to continue practicing in Rice Lake and helping patients meet their healthcare goals and live a healthier life,” Yeager said. “I love serving this community and can’t wait to continue to improve our community’s health and wellbeing.”
  • Oakleaf Clinics and Foot & Ankle Clinic (2919 Stout Road in Menomonie) will share the former Prevea medical clinic building they purchased together from HSHS. OakLeaf Clinics has hired Kristin Rubenzer and her team, who previously worked at Prevea Health Menomonie, to serve as providers. In addition, OakLeaf OBGYN Dr. Hailey Roberts and a team of midwives will work in Menomonie. Urgent care services will be added in June.
  • OakLeaf Clinics Oncology Services has opened at 3802 W. Oakwood Mall Drive in Eau Claire. Oncology Specialist Dr. Mihailo Lalich will lead the clinic, with support from Angela Quick, executive director of cancer services; Nurse Practitioner Sarah Reiter; and Jessica Gugel, an oncology nurse navigator. All of the specialists served in the same roles at the Prevea Cancer Center at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital. The OakLeaf Clinics Oncology Services team has already scheduled more than 300 patients for their regular surveillance care appointments.
