What is Marshfield Clinic Health System’s vision for the future?

We are steadfast in our commitment to our mission to provide accessible and compassionate care to every individual in our communities. Our patients need us, and we will continue to elevate how we serve our communities by improving their experience and supporting their health. That means increasing access, reducing wait times and enhancing communication.

Is Marshfield Clinic Health System pursuing a partnership with another health system?

Continuous evaluation of opportunities is crucial to becoming stronger in an environment that is becoming increasingly difficult on rural healthcare systems. We are actively looking for ways to adapt to today’s difficult times and to anticipate the challenges of tomorrow. That includes exploring partnerships with like-minded organizations. We are committed to keeping our teams and our communities informed as we continue to explore these options and chart our path forward.

Marshfield Clinic Health System has been in the news lately for reducing jobs and shifting services as a result of financial challenges. What steps is the health system taking to address these challenges?

The challenges we are facing aren’t unique as healthcare systems across the U.S. are seeing the cost for medicine, equipment and labor growing exponentially. To overcome, we must think differently to meet the evolving needs of the patients we serve. We provide care to patients in a service area that spans nearly 50,000 square miles. When you have such a wide geography, it’s imperative to identify ways to be more effective and efficient with resources, which includes transitioning services and staffing to areas where a larger spectrum of care exists, and in some cases discontinuing services that aren’t well utilized or when providers depart. We are confident that we will overcome these challenges and build a stronger and more resilient future for the organization and communities we serve.
