Marshfield Clinic Health System has acquired Oswald Counseling Associates Inc. at 2450 Vineyard Drive in Plover and will continue to operate the behavioral health practice as Marshfield Clinic Health System-Plover Counseling Center. 

With the purchase, Plover Counseling Center’s five therapists will join the Marshfield Clinic system. 

Marshfield Clinic Health System CEO Dr. Susan Turney said the acquisition comes at a critical time when demand for mental health services is high in light of the effects of the pandemic. Turney added the acquisition continues a period of growth in the region for the Health System, which recently announced it would construct a new hospital attached to its existing clinic in Stevens Point. A new cancer center was opened by the Health System in Stevens Point in 2017.

Lynne Oswald, the long-time owner of Oswald Counseling Associates, will continue seeing patients for Marshfield Clinic Health System.
