SSM Health Dean Medical Group makes temporary changes to services in Whitewater

(May 6, 2020) As part of our ongoing effort to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, SSM Health Dean Medical Group – Whitewater will be temporarily relocating and will work out of the SSM Health Dean Medical Group – Fort Atkinson clinic located at 740 Reena Ave, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538.

Though temporarily working from the Fort Atkinson location, Roberta Wedl, MD, Nathaniel Besch, DO, Tiffany Allen, APNP and Summer Schuler, APNP want to reassure patients that they will continue to strive to provide exceptional service and personalized care.

Patients may schedule appointments with their Whitewater providers at the SSM Health Dean Medical Group – Fort Atkinson location by calling 920-563-0888. The Fort Atkinson clinic is open Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm.

“Maintaining a strong patient relationship is the goal of all providers and staff during this time of temporary change, says Dr. Nathaniel Besch. “We sincerely appreciate our patient’s flexibility and understanding. We look forward to being back in Whitewater and will continue to take excellent care of you and your loved ones.  

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, and SSM Health is evaluating community safety and needs on an ongoing basis. We will continually assess the right time to resume services at this location.

Bicyclewise Covid 19 Hours & Operations : From our Governor: Bicycle Shops ARE essential.

We believe riding, while using safe practices, can help people get through this difficult time and we’d like to be available as long as riding is allowed, we’re able and it’s sensible. We have significantly shortened store hours. If the limited hours don’t work for you, please call us and we’ll try to find a way to work with you.
Along with shortened hours (see bottom of page), we’ve instituted some operational changes.

    We are following protocols such as social distancing and disinfecting
    Please call in advance if at all possible.
    The doors will be locked until customers arrive.
    We will come out to get or return your bike for repairs.
  As always, we’ll call when your repair is ready.
    We’re happy to help with bike or product sales but please call first.

We care deeply about our customers, community, friends, and families and wish to help in whatever way we can as long as we can do so safely for you & us.  Best wishes. Things are changing, call 1st 262-473-4730
COVID-19 Hours: Sun./Mon. – Closed; Tues. – Fri. 10-2; Sat. 9-2
                                We will happily make other arrangements if possible.
                             Awarded America’s Best Bike Shop 5 consecutive years!

Quiet Hut Sports: To my dear customers, many of whom are also my friends, I thought it would be a good idea to explain why Quiet Hut Sports is going to remain closed until further notice. Even though bicycle shops are permitted to remain open under Governor Evers’ essential services designation, I cannot take the risk because of my underlying heath issues and more importantly to me, my wife Cheryl’s underlying health issues. Both of us have asthma and heart valve issues. Cheryl has issues with lung weakness and has had pneumonia twice in the last 6 years. I cannot in good conscience put her at risk as I cannot do my job and maintain a social distance of safety. I am sorry to my customers that depended upon me for their bike service that I cannot be there for them at this time. Bike riding, walking, hiking and just being outside in the sun is healthy when social distancing is observed. During our walk yesterday after dinner we observed many young people in Cravath Lake Park gathering and enjoying sports and walking together in groups. This further helped me decide to remain closed as people are not practicing safe social distancing protocol as recommended by our health care experts. I ask that you all practice what our health care professionals recommend as it will help flatten the curve and save lives. So I ask that you pray for each other, practice social distancing, wash your hands often spread the Word and not the virus. See you when this is over. Be Safe. Dave Saalsaa

Walgreens: Introducing new services for seniors (age 55+), for a limited time until further notice, to help protect our customers at higher risk during COVID-19. Seniors hour every Tuesday from 8-9 a.m. for a limited period of time. Free standard shipping on all orders, excluding photo products. Weight restrictions apply. See for more information. Drive-thru Shopping: Select products available at Walgreens locations with drive-thrus. Products are subject to availability and purchase quantity restrictions apply.

Walmart: We know our older customers could be more vulnerable to the coronavirus and to better support them, Walmart is offering special shopping hours. From March 24 through April 28, Walmart stores will host an hour-long senior shopping event every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older. This will start one hour before the store opens. Our Pharmacies and Vision Centers will also be open during this time. (Since the store normally opens at 7 a.m., the senior shopping event is from 6-7 a.m.)

Winchester True Value: To all our TRULY VALUED customers, especially our senior citizens. We will do what we can to help. Give us a call at 262-473-4264, we’ll check our shelves, call you back, get a method of payment, and meet you at the front door with your purchase. Otherwise our hours are 8 am to 7 pm M – F Sat 8 am to 5 pm and Sun 9 am to 4 pm. Thanks and hope to see you soon and don’t forget our chicks are on their way!!
