Eau Claire offers Mayo Clinic maternal fetal medicine appointments

July 02, 2015

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire now offers patients monthly consultations and advanced level II ultrasound appointments with Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) providers from Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

MFM providers care for women who have high-risk pregnancies involving obstetric, medical, surgical or genetic complications. Mayo Clinic providers travel to Eau Claire monthly.

"We are really excited to offer this to patients,” says Heather Costley, director of Obstetrics & Gynecology in the northwest Wisconsin region. “Previously, patients who needed advanced ultrasound services had to travel to Rochester or other medical centers for this care. Offering this service here is wonderful, particularly for patients who benefit from the ability to schedule locally.”

Costley says by offering this service locally to patients, it makes scheduling easier, expedites care and decreases travel costs.
