Press Staff Writer

        ProMedica has opened two new health clinics for employees of Wood County Schools. The clinics are located at 2751 Bay Park Dr., Suite 209, Oregon, and 1180 N. Main St., Suite 5, Bowling Green.
        The ProMedica Physicians Wood County School Consortium Health Clinics are open six days a week, Monday through Saturday, with extended hours three days a week. About 4,000 plan members, which includes employees and their families, will be able to access the services at the health clinics.
        Kent Bishop, MD, chief medical officer ProMedica physicians and acute care said, “As healthcare adapts and changes, we need to think differently about how to manage the health and well-being of specific populations.”
        The clinics provide a wide array of additional services beyond a traditional primary care office, including services such as wellness programs, routine testing and labs, nutrition counseling and medically integrated fitness programs. “We first heard of such a program at a conference about four years ago. We’ve been working on bringing it to Wood County. It’s a great asset to employees, especially in rural regions. As superintendents, we desire to provide great services and have a healthy workforce,” said Adam Koch, superintendent of Otsego Local Schools.
        The health clinics also have some potential cost-saving benefits compared to urgent care and emergency room visits. “We are always mindful of cost-savings initiatives. This is a win-win situation,” said Brent Welker, superintendent of Eastwood Local Schools
        Both superintendents have received positive feedback about the clinics from employees and their families. “My daughter used one of the clinics before she went back to college after winter break. The scheduling was easy and convenient and she was pleased with the experience,” Welker said.
