Bellin’s Denmark Clinic Observes 10-Year Milestone

09/12/2008

DENMARK — It was 10 years ago, on Sept. 16, 1998, that Bellin Health Family Medical Center-Denmark opened the doors at its current location. Providers and staff at the clinic are taking the opportunity to reminisce and prepare for another decade of providing health care services to the village and surrounding areas.

The 5,800-square foot clinic, at 595 Brown County R, was built in 1998 to better meet the needs of the community. Bellin Health purchased the clinic’s predecessor, Denmark Clinic, at 128 Main St., in 1994. The Denmark location was Bellin’s first Family Medical Center. The health system now has 25 primary care clinic locations.

Family Medical Center-Denmark brought to the village more health care providers, new technology, extended service hours, expanded lab and X-ray services, OB/GYN services, pediatric care and urgent care, said Bellin’s Dr. Brad Wozney. He joined the new clinic immediately after his residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has been at the Denmark facility from its inception.

“It went from an adult-only clinic to a full service family practice clinic,” Wozney said. “The practice evolved quite rapidly – from using a paper scheduling book to using electronic medical records. We’ve gone from hand scribbling to cutting-edge computer technology within these last 10 years.”

The clinic has also witnessed continued growth in its patient base, Wozney said. “We’re getting new patients almost every day.”

The clinic has become a landmark in the growing village of Denmark, which has seen its population swell from 1,958 in 2000 to 2,139 in 2007.

“Much like Land O’Lakes – the cheese company – the high school and other landmarks in this area, we’ve become a fixture in Denmark,” Wozney said. “We’re here to stay and are positioned to continue to provide top-notch health care service with increasingly favorable outcomes for the next decade and beyond.”

Providers at Family Medical Center-Denmark include Wozney; Mark Dehnel, PA; Deb Hoffman, NP; and Dr. Bob Cavanaugh, MD.
