You know Family Health La Clinica as it stands today. A place where every member of your household can receive quality healthcare. We welcome patients at five locations and use our Mobile Health Center to take healthcare out to communities.
But our modern facilities and statewide reach are the work of decades. We have a rich, community-led legacy and are honored to live the mission through our daily work.
Curious About Our Start?
We’d be honored to share our story with you.
During the 1960s, a group of community leaders saw a need: Where can migrant farmworkers receive medical care? This group of healthcare professionals, migrant advocates and church leaders built the foundations of who we are today through volunteerism, small donations and strong conviction.
They hosted free migrant health clinics in local church halls.
In 1973 they were incorporated as La Clinica de los Campesinos, earned a Migrant Health Center designation and were able to purchase the first mobile health unit that was used seasonally to deliver medical care to migrant farmworkers.
We reached two important milestones during the 1980s.
- We were designated as a Community Health Center, which created funding for our work and allowed us to offer services to all community members.
- We opened our Wild Rose location allowing patients to access care year-round.
Having a year-round location in Wild Rose led to growth that necessitated the construction of the Wautoma clinic that operates today. The Wautoma clinic opens its doors to the public in 1997.
13 years later, in 2010, we opened our first dental clinic outside of Wautoma in Mauston. Family Health La Clinica – Mauston still operates today in the same location.
In the past decade, we were able to expand how we live our mission. We were able to open up numerous satellite locations, hire additional provider types and offer more support and services.
In just ten years, we transformed from a single dental clinic in Mauston to one of the largest dental clinics in the state.

2022 | Planned expansion of a full suite of healthcare services in Stevens Point and Beaver Dam
We are proud to welcome every member of our community to visit any of our locations. We serve more than 50,000 patients from 10 counties every year, and we provide healthcare services to every migrant farmworker in the state.
We accept many insurance types, offer a Sliding Fee Scale discount program and are always willing to work with people who have difficulty paying for care. It’s just one of the many ways we honor our mission.
