 CHN’s “Women’s Night Clinic” to provide routine exams and mammograms

during special evening program in November


Recognizing the busy lifestyle of women today, Community Health Network will host a “Women’s Night Clinic” for routine annual examinations and mammograms in November.


Board Certified gynecologist Patrick Bruno, MD, who is affiliated with the CHN Women's Medical Services practice, will see patients from 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12th during the special evening clinic offering.


“In today’s hectic world, women often juggle their work and home lives, leaving little time to attend to their personal healthcare needs,” Dr. Bruno said. “We understand that the most important schedule is that of our patients. By offering routine pap exams and mammograms during one single consultation, we’re hoping to meet the demands of their busy schedules by saving them a second trip to the hospital for further testing.”


As part of the Women’s Night Clinic, routine annual pelvic examinations will be offered at CHN Women’s Medical Services, which is located in the Medical Office Building of Berlin Memorial Hospital at 225 Memorial Drive. Upon completion of the patient’s pelvic exam, she simply walks down the hall from the clinic, to the Berlin Memorial Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Department, where she’ll undergo her annual mammogram.


The Women’s Night Clinic is open to all area women, including current and first time patients of CHN Women’s Medical Services. Specialized and high-risk cases will be handled by Dr. Bruno during his regular daytime office hours. Advance appointments for the Women’s Night Clinic are required by calling (920)361-5737 or toll-free at 1-800-236-1283 ext. 5737.


A Green Bay native, Dr. Bruno earned his bachelor's and medical degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he also completed a residency in gynecology. In private practice since 1993, he is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.


Dr. Bruno teams with family nurse practitioner Jane Morrow in serving CHN Women's Medical Services, which provides an array of specialized female health services, including routine examinations, reproductive health, gynecological surgeries including laparascopic/endoscopic procedures; hormone replacement therapy; urogynecology and pelvic reconstruction; and bone densitometry scanning for osteoporosis.


CHN Women's Medical Services is a member of Community Health Network, which includes Berlin Memorial Hospital, CHN Home Care, Juliette Manor, Partners Family Pharmacy, Proformance Fitness & Rehabilitation, Proformance Workplace Services, Senior Care, and the CHN Medical group, consisting of more than 110 primary and specialty care providers serving nearly 20 community clinics.
