Connections In addition to expanding access points, Aspirus is working diligently behind the scenes to connect providers, create consistent processes and share information. That way, patients will benefit from more efficient, effective and satisfying care. ASPIRUS recognizes that the best way to serve people’s health care needs is to provide the right care, at the right time, in the right setting. That’s why Aspirus continues to grow the health system, adding touch points throughout north central Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Touchpoints We all understand that health services aren’t as good when people have to drive for hours to access them.

Three new treatment stations have also been added at Aspirus Kidney Care–Antigo to help address a growing need for dialysis. w w Iron River, Michigan: A new 24,000-square-foot clinic brings together primary and specialty care, as well as rehabilitation services.
