Upland Hills Health in Mineral Point
As Upland Hills Health expands our presence in Mineral Point, updates will be posted here as they happen.
Mineral Point Medical Center-Upland Hills Health Partnership
In early July, Upland Hills Health (UHH) and Mineral Point Medical Center (MPMC) announced their intention to affiliate. MPMC Clinic Manager Andrea Kinch said at the time, “Our providers will be able to focus their efforts on patients while utilizing the strength and foundation of UHH to navigate the changing healthcare landscape. We have worked side by side for many years and are excited for this opportunity to unify in a more formal way.”
As meetings continue into September between UHH administration and MPMC providers to finalize the details of the affiliation, Lisa Schnedler explained, “UHH accepts the same insurance plans that MPMC does and that’s not going to change. So if you are currently using the Mineral Point Medical Center for care, you don’t have to worry about switching.”
Schnedler addressed other concerns and questions as well, stating, “At this time, we intend to keep the clinic on High Street open as the location for Mineral Point Medical Center. You can continue to call the same number as you always have for appointments, and we hope to have more details to share with you in October.”
Will the Mineral Point Medical Center on High Street stay open?
Yes. Both the Mineral Point Medical Center and the Dodgeville Medical Center will remain open, in their current locations.
Will my insurance plan still be accepted at the clinic?
Yes. Upland Hills Health also maintains agreements with nearly all major health plans including Dean, Quartz, Physicians Plus a broad range of PPOs, Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances.
Do I have to find a new doctor?
For most patients of the Mineral Point Medical Center, very little will change. UHH administrators are meeting with MPMC providers during the month of September to work through the details of their partnership.
- Dr. Kent Kramer has chosen to pursue emergency medicine exclusively and will no longer see patients in a clinic setting.
- Dr. Jodi McGraw recently announced her plans. She will be changing practice locations to the UHH Mount Horeb Clinic and the UHH Spring Green Clinic. She will see patients at the new UHH Barneveld Clinic when it opens in mid-November.
Further details of the partnership, and of additional providers that will be coming to the Mineral Point Medical Center will be announced as they are finalized.
