Iron River Change in Business Hours

July 8, 2011

With the goal to offer more services and expanded hours this fall, The Lakes Community Health Center’s clinic in Iron River will be temporarily closed on Saturdays. Current business hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.

“At first, we were skeptical how Saturday hours would go because it’s something that other clinics have tried before and it’s not always successful,” says Reba Rice, CEO of The Lakes. “But after a few months of the word getting out, we were amazed at the demand for Saturday hours.”

Rice continues, “Unfortunately, we have not been able to staff our Saturday clinic hours consistently.

 And while it’s clear that Saturday was a great day to offer services, we need to take some time for planning and hiring. We hope we can offer these expanded Saturday hours again in the fall.”

Offering expanded hours is critical to the organization’s mission as it helps reduce barriers for those seeking high quality, affordable health care. Stay tuned for updates and more information on when Saturday hours will resume and what new services will be offered.

UPDATE: September 29, 2011
Rice adds, “We had hoped to have more news about resuming Saturday hours at our clinic in Iron River by late fall 2011. We are still working on this project and it continues to be of utmost priority. Thank you for your patience.”
