I'm not on the district insurance plan, is this clinic for me?
The Cardinal Healthy Primary Care Clinic is for the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District. The clinic is where any employee will report for pre-employment screens such as TB tests, etc. as instructed by the Human Resources Department. It is also open to all employees for the wellness program and biometrics or health risk assessment testing. It is true that most services are provided as part of the health benefits program. If you have questions, please contact the Human Resources Department of the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District.
Help-another clinic won't transfer my medical records or test results!
