AAHS to close Benson Clinic
by Leslie Ehrenberg
The Appleton City Council heard the Appleton Area Health Services (AAHS) Board has decided to close the Benson Clinic.
AAHS CEO Kathy Johnson made her regular monthly presentation to the council at their April 20 meeting. In opening the Benson Clinic, the hospital board had hoped to bring additional revenue to the hospital through a narrow insurance network.
Through Johnson’s investigation of the network, she learned that it had been determined the network was not achievable. “The board went through the financials and have learned the intent to create a narrow network is really not feasible,” she told the council. “With this information the board has decided we will move ahead with closing the Benson Clinic.”
Updating the council on other happenings within the facility, Johnson said the AAHS Board will be looking at the possible need for assisted living at Apple Ridge Estates at their next working session.
Cash on hand has grown slightly for AAHS. At the end of March there were 10 days of cash on hand.
