Winneshiek Medical Center kicked off renovating the Mabel Clinic on Friday, April 15. During the renovation, Mabel Clinic will provide care through a temporary clinic located in the Mabel City Hall. “We are very much committed to providing quality care to Mabel and the surrounding communities,” says Lisa Radtke, Winneshiek Medical Center chief administrative officer. “We certainly want to extend our thanks to the City of Mabel for graciously planning to share city hall space during our renovations.”

The renovation project is aimed at enhancing patients’ experiences in a more convenient and comforting atmosphere, as well as improving the facility for our staff. The temporary medical clinic was open in the Mabel City Hall on Monday, April 18, with no changes or limitations in the services offered. “Residents have come to trust our experienced providers and compassionate support team at the Mabel Clinic,” says Dave Rooney, Winneshiek Medical Center operations administrator. “And while the Mabel Clinic will be temporarily relocated, the services and care patients count on will not change.”

Mabel Clinic renovations include upgrading the waiting area and exam room, replacing flooring and improving handicap accessibility. “The project is expected to take about six weeks and we’re looking forward to celebrating with the community when the work is complete,” says Rooney.

Mabel Clinic is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Same day appointments are available and Walk-In Wellness Lab Testing is available daily. Patients who have questions or concerns should call the Mabel Clinic at (507) 493-5115 to learn more.
