Prairie Lakes Speciality Clinic Open Date

Written by Jennifer Bender


Prairie Lakes Healthcare System broke ground October 25, 2016 on a $40 million expansion project on the hospital campus. The campus has seen significant changes over the past two years; including a new 65,000 square foot clinic building, an east entrance canopy, and helipad relocation. Prairie Lakes is pleased to announce that the project is now nearing its end.


The strategically placed building, that is adjacent to the Emergency Department, allows quick access to the new rooftop helipad. The helipad will become operational within the next few weeks. Contractors and Prairie Lakes staff members are making finishing touches on the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic.


The Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic will open for patient appointments on Monday, October 29, 2018. Specialty services moving to the clinic include cardiology, dermatology, general surgery, nephrology, pulmonology and urology.  The clinic includes a lab, adding convenience for many patients needing those services in conjunction with their clinic appointment.


Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and Glacial Lakes Orthopedics will make the move to the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic to be on the same floor for patient convenience.  The new rehabilitation therapy department will include a state-of-the-art therapy pool. A notable feature of the future therapy pool is a lift that lowers patients slowly into the water without having to use steps.


A Public Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, 2018. All from our region are invited to discover the Prairie Lakes Specialty Clinic between 2:00 – 7:00 p.m. A program and ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m. will celebrate the completion of the expansion project.
