Bellin Health Oconto Clinic Temporarily Closed
Burst pipe causes facility issue; patient appointments moved elsewhere
The Bellin Health Oconto Clinic will be closed through late October or early November as crews complete damage repair resulting from a burst pipe. Patients are being rescheduled at nearby Bellin facilities until the clinic reopens.
A leaky broken pipe was discovered at the clinic Sunday, Oct. 16 into Monday, Oct. 17. Working with a local contractor and industrial cleaning service, Bellin’s Facilities Maintenance team acted quickly to determine the extent of the damage and establish a recovery plan to enable the clinic to reopen.
“Our teams stepped up quickly to mitigate further damage and create a game plan for both near-term patient appointments and our eventual clinic reopening,” said Julie Bieber, Vice President, Bellin Health Oconto Hospital. “We thank our patients for their patience and understanding as we work to navigate this unfortunate situation.”
Some repairs will continue once the clinic reopens, but disruption to patients and staff will be minimal. Bellin Health will continue to keep community members updated via news media, social media and other channels. Individuals with questions should call (920) 445-7373.
