Western Wisconsin Clinic Closings
On Monday, Dec. 10, Corporate Health & Wellness (CH&W), Inc., based in Paris, KY, closed down the operations of two community-based outpatient clinics in Hayward and Rice Lake, Wisconsin, serving 915 veteran patients.
CH&W contacted its employees at the two clinics and advised them to leave and lock the doors. Patients were ready to be seen when the doors were locked.
Patients scheduled for appointments beginning Tuesday, Dec. 11, are being called by Minneapolis VAMC staff. VAMC will continue to contact scheduled patients and advise them of the situation and to make arrangements for alternative care.
Sounds like these veterans were abandoned by the private sector.
