Where We've Been, Where We're Going
Excellent health care: it's a crucial element of life in any community and Hartington, NE, has been fortunate to have a quality medical clinic in the community for over 40 years.
Since 1962, primary care was provided in Hartington by Dr. Charles Vlach, a popular physician who cared for generations of families in northeast Nebraska. In 1997, Avera Sacred Heart Hospital purchased Dr. Vlach’s clinic and the name changed to the Avera Sacred Heart Medical Clinic.
The Hartington clinic now employs Dr. Connie Micek as well as Physician Assistant, Adam Schapmann, and a nurse practitioner, Tonya Joachimsen. In addition, there are nine people on staff including three nurses. As part of Hartington's home town health care team, the providers offer services in the clinic five days a week - 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
And because the clinic is Avera-owned, they benefit from the regional partnership of health professionals who share support services to maintain excellent care at more than 229 locations in eastern South Dakota, northeastern Nebraska and surrounding states.
