Important information during COVID-19

We require all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering while in our hospitals. We’re also screening all patients and visitors for symptoms of COVID-19.For safety reasons, we only allow one adult visitor per patient, per day. No visitors are allowed for patients with COVID-19. Exceptions to these policies include:

  • Newborn, special care nursery and pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Birth center patients: Two support persons, including a doula (COVID-19 patients: only one person)
  • Surgical and procedural visits: Visitors need to wait in their car or at home if possible. The surgery department will call the visitor when the patient is ready to leave.
  • Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
  • Compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)

We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, Skype or setting up Google Duo (PDF). Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.

If you need in-person or emergency care, don’t delay. We’re open and ready to care for you, with rigorous safety and cleaning protocols in place to help keep you healthy. To see if you should be tested for COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 testing page.

Varicose Veins? We can help.

Varicose veins are more than a cosmetic concern. Weakened valves in your legs can cause leg pain discomfort and fatigue – which could lead to more medical problems.

At our vascular vein clinic, our experts can get rid of your varicose veins. The treatment is minimally invasive, with less down time for you.

Call 715-243-3400 to talk to your doctor about treatment that’s right for you.

Risk Factors

Women are more susceptible than men to varicose veins, and pregnancy also can be a contributing factor. A family history and professions that require long hours on your feet, such as teachers and nurses, lead to increased risk. Other factors that contribute to these conditions, include excess weight, age (50+) and family history.

Insurance

Varicose veins are a medical condition—and are treated as such by insurance providers. Most insurance providers cover the treatment of varicose veins, including surgery, if nonsurgical methods are unsuccessful.

Is varicose vein surgery is right for you? Our experts can help decide if you’re a candidate for the treatment. No referrals are needed.
