UW Health is consolidating its primary care clinics to keep staff safe during the COVID-19 health crisis.

This means Fitchburg’s UW Health clinic for family medicine at the Odana location, 5543 E. Cheryl Pkwy. has temporarily closed, effective Monday, March 23.

The move is intended to accommodate patients who have urgent medical needs that require in-person care, while at the same time supporting social distancing goals, the release states.

Patients are encouraged to consider provider visits by phone, MyChart or Care Anywhere video visit options, the release states.

The following primary care locations will remain open for in-person and essential visits:

  • 20 S. Park
  • Beaver Dam
  • DeForest Clinic
  • East Clinic
  • Odana Clinic
  • Portage Clinic
  • Verona Clinic
