St. Ben's Clinic





The mission of St. Ben’s Clinic is to provide respectful, patient-centered, coordinated, comprehensive primary healthcare services to adults who will benefit from the skills and experience of a nurse-practitioner based model of care. This care specializes in developing a relationship with patients through respect and understanding to overcome traditional barriers to medical care.

Those barriers may include: difficulty in using office-based clinical practice, lack of trust in the large system of care, problems associated with poverty, challenges of substance abuse or long term mental illness or homelessness. The clinic benefits from physician involvement and oversight as well as the assessment, counseling and referral skills of a professional social worker to address all issues related to health.


Becoming a Patient

Those interested in becoming a patient of the clinic should schedule an appointment with the clinic social worker or visit the clinic during walk-in hours.


Enrollment and Coverage 

The clinic accepts Medicare, Medical Assistance, and several BadgerCare HMO's. Social work staff will work with uninsured people to enroll in coverage or receive financial assistance funding. People with BadgerCare HMO's should contact the clinical social worker to discuss the clinic's ability to accept patients from their specific HMO before coming for care. 


The support of CSM Foundations helps to meet the operating expenses of the clinic through grants and personal donations.
