Aspirus Wausau Family Medicine
The Wausau Residency Clinic was built ten years ago as a modern facility for patient care, learning, and teaching. It is located in a 27,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building that offers:
- 18 exam rooms and two procedure rooms;
- Fully computerized X-ray services, accessible anywhere within the Aspirus system;
- A 64-seat auditorium for health care conferences, education programs, and workshops;
- Dedicated training, meeting, and administrative spaces; and
- Ample windows and natural light throughout.
The clinic is designed specifically with patient-centered care in mind. Laboratory and ancillary services are decentralized, which means these services come to the patient. Nursing stations face exam rooms so nurses can observe patients more easily. To respect patient privacy, administrative offices and training spaces are on the second floor, away from patient care areas.
The clinic is located on the campus of Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Patients, clinicians, residents, and students all benefit from the convenience of a primary care clinic in close proximity to its referring hospital.
