Columbus Clinic to Close in August
After several years serving the community, the UW Health Columbus Clinic will be closing on August 4.
The clinic has historically offered a combination of primary care, limited specialty care and most recently sleep medicine. Its only physician, Dr. Nazi Khan, after practicing in Columbus for more than 20 years, has decided to move exclusively into sleep medicine and will be relocating to UW Health at The American Center.
"It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the Columbus community and work with such an amazing staff and professional colleagues for so many years. At this point in my life I have made the very difficult decision to devote my full practice to sleep medicine and will be moving to support the programs at The American Center," said Dr. Khan. "I will dearly miss my relationships with my patients and their families but feel that this is best at this stage of my career."
Lori Hauschild, UW Health's vice president of primary care, said, "We'll be working with patients to find them a new clinic for their primary health care. We're working very closely with the Columbus Hospital leadership to offer patients primary care options in the community."
UW Health also has several primary care clinics in eastern Dane and Dodge counties that will be available.
The excellent UW Health Columbus staff has many options to choose for other positions. The clinic has five staff members, a physician assistant and a physician.
