Gundersen Health System is expanding its facilities in Prairie du Chien, strengthening its commitment to residents and the community. A kick-off ceremony was held today (Wednesday) for Gundersen’s new dental and eye clinic at 118 Marquette Rd./U.S. Highway 35.
The new 8,000-square-foot clinic will:
•Consolidate Gundersen’s dental and eye services into one location. The dental services are currently available in the Biehl and Okano dental office behind Hardee’s, while the eye clinic is located at 213 E. Blackhawk Ave., where it’s been since Dr. Robert McWilliams opened the clinic in 1950. (His son, Dr. Tom and wife Lynn McWilliams sold the business to Gundersen in 2002.)
•Provide space for expanded dental specialty services, beginning with oral surgery.
•Feature state-of-the-art dental radiology and ophthalmic equipment.
•Include more vision exam rooms and designated rooms for specialized eye testing.
