Reopening of Ophthalmology and Cataract Surgical Program


 April 28, 2023 - The North of Superior Healthcare Group is very pleased to announce the re-opening of Ophthalmology and Cataract Surgical program at our Wilson Memorial General Hospital site in Marathon.   


The program is being re-introduced with the returning support of Dr. Mike Rogelstad and our skilled local family physicians, nurses and support services staff.  


Dr. Rogelstad has been providing high quality ophthalmology services to patients from Marathon and surrounding communities for the past 30 years offering consultations, cataract surgery and follow up.  We are currently planning for consults to begin on June 19, 2023 and surgeries to resume in September 2023.  We will be contacting prior patients who were due for regular follow-up appointments in the year 2022. For new patients requiring ophthalmology services, please visit your family physician to be referred.


We thank you for your patience and understanding during our program pause.  NOSH continues to be passionate about providing services closer to home for the communities that we serve and look forward to welcoming Dr. Rogelstad, his long-time patients and new patients to the hospital.
