Edgar Medical Clinic changing hands

Even though the Edgar Medical Clinic is changing hands on July 1, patients will be able to continue their care with their current provider.

After more than 20 years of operation, Mary Lanning Healthcare will be turning over ownership of the Edgar clinic to Brodstone Memorial Hospital in Superior. Heidi Bergen, APRN, will remain on staff, as will many of the other staff members.

“Mary Lanning Healthcare has a long history of commitment to serving rural communities like Edgar,” said Eric Barber, MLH President & CEO. “When it became obvious that we were not going to be able to sustain the clinic on our own, we were pleased to learn that Brodstone was willing to assist. Brodstone’s Critical Access Hospital designation will allow it to ensure the viability of the Edgar Clinic for the foreseeable future and continue to provide local healthcare access to the community.”

“Brodstone is pleased with the collaboration with Mary Lanning Healthcare in the transfer of ownership of the Edgar Medical Clinic,” said John Keelan, Brodstone CEO. “MLH has been cooperative and generous in working with us to keep rural healthcare viable for Edgar. We are pleased about the reception we have received from Edgar residents, and we are looking forward to serving them with quality care. Edgar Medical Clinic employees will remain, and become employed by Brodstone. Their great care will continue without disruption in meeting the healthcare needs of the community.”

Patients of the Edgar Medical Clinic will notice a small change in hours of service. New hours, effective July 1, will be Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. Heidi Bergen also will be seeing patients at the Nelson Family Medical Center on Wednesdays, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m.

Eric Barber said he wants to thank Edgar residents for their support over the past two decades, and he hopes MLH can continue to serve all residents of Clay County through the hospital and medical specialty clinics.
