RICE LAKE, WI – May 14, 2024 – Oakleaf Clinics today announced that it is opening a new clinic in Rice Lake with local healthcare providers Bailey Yeager, PA-C and Kaley Wilson, APNP who previously worked at Prevea Health Rice Lake which closed in April due to the HSHS/Prevea exit from the Western Wisconsin region. The new Oakleaf Clinics Rice Lake is now open at 1024 N. Main Street, Rice Lake, WI 54868.
