MARSHFIELD, WI – Aspirus announces that they are opening a new primary care clinic on December 1. Aspirus Clinic – Marshfield (146 N. Central Ave.) will provide care for patients of all ages.

“We have a growing number of patients who travel from the Marshfield area to seek care at Aspirus locations,” said Matt Brewer, Vice President of Operations and Chief Nursing Officer of Aspirus Medical Group. “By establishing a clinic in Marshfield, we can offer additional access to primary care services in another community within our expanding service area and eliminate the need to travel for those who are seeking our care.”

Katelyn Frankwick, PA-C enjoys the complexity of helping her patients manage chronic conditions. Her special interests include pediatrics, mental health, cardiology, and diabetes management. She loves the diversity of conditions within her internal medicine/pediatrics specialty. “Being a physician assistant gives me a chance to connect with individuals and gain their trust to form a strong relationship,” said Katelyn. “Giving individuals in small towns easy access to healthcare is so vitally important and one of the main reasons I chose to join the Aspirus family.”
