There will be a change in operating hours for Lakewood’s Pillager, Motley, Browerville and Eagle Bend clinics.

The clinics will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays instead of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Staples clinic hours will remain the same, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday; walk-in clinic from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays.

This change is being made to better address staffing needs in order to ensure patients continue to receive the care and services they need, according to Lakewood Health officials.
