Ribbon clipped at Birnamwood clinic
space
With sun, smiles, and a new medical facility, Aspirus Langlade Hospital, residents of the Birnamwood community and the staff at the sparkling Main Street clinic clipped a ribbon to formally open a new era of medical care in the Shawano County community on Thursday.

Bonnie Block, a registered nurse at the Aspirus facility, welcomed the crowd, assisted by Lynne Moegenburg, also a registered nurse and regional clinic administrator.

Rev. Robert Obol, director of mission services for Aspirus Langlade Hospital, offered the opening prayer.

Among the program’s speakers were David Schneider, former Aspirus Langlade CEO, who oversaw the Birnamwood program. He explained the need for the expanded facility, which replaces what was an existing clinic. It had been outgrown by the demand for professional services in the community.

Schneider stressed the positive aspects of the cooperation Aspirus Langlade Hospital experienced with the people of Birnamwood, the patients and the village, which participated in land acquisition.

They (village officials) wanted this clinic on Main Street, he said, and on Thursday the ribbon was cut to formally make the wishes of both the community and health care community come to fruition.

Other speakers during the pre-tour program were Andy Barth, who has filled Schneider’s position as the CEO and executive director of Aspirus Langlade Hospital. He was exceptionally upbeat about health care in the region.

Dr. Gary Hegranes, the regional medical director, provided a historical view of the Birnamwood project dating back to the tenure of Dr. Damp in the 1960s, and his association with the Antigo and Birnamwood medical practices.

Hegranes said he has been on the local medical scene for 32 years, and after arriving found a true hometown.

He expressed pride in the new clinic facilities.

The Birnamwood clinic was part of a $13.86 million plan to improve facilities at the Aspirus Langlade service area. The clinic at Birnamwood covers 7,000 square feet, which doubles the size of the existing medical facility
