NorthLakes Community Clinic is proud to be a Community Health Center (CHC). We are working to improve the health of our communities. As a Community Health Center, NorthLakes is a non-profit organization (501(c)3) managed by a patient majority board of directors. Community Health Centers provide care to everyone, including those with private insurance, those with Medicaid and Medicare (government insurance), and those without insurance. In addition, Community Health Centers provide comprehensive, integrated, whole person care including medical, dental, behavioral health and prescription services.
NorthLakes Community Clinic is the result of the merging of North Woods and The Lakes Community Health Centers in 2013. Founded in 1976, North Woods provided medical and dental services from clinics in Minong and Hayward Wisconsin. The Lakes, which was formed in 2008 provided medical, dental, behavioral health and physical therapy services to patients from clinics in Iron River and Ashland Wisconsin.
