BELOIT — Beloit Area Community Health Center recently welcomed a new medical director. Manuj Goel.
Goel brings administrative and medical leadership to Community Health Systems, after working in Mississippi as the director of wound care facility.
Hired on Dec. 7, Goel moved back to the Stateline Area to be closer to family, and to raise a child, he said. He touted the Beloit clinic’s staff, who offer medical, dental and other health care.
“I think we work well together and we work off of one another to promote our mission of providing comprehensive care to our community,” Goel said.
Goel graduated from medical school in 2006. He served his residency at a Michigan State University-affiliated hospital near Flint, Michigan in 2011.
“I am very excited to be here, and to help those who need our help,” he added. “We’re definitely serving a community that needs our services.”
After restructuring, Beloit Area Community Health Center provides access to various health specialists, dental offices and certified interpreters for patients in need of medical attention.
As chronic health conditions plague more Americans, including metabolic syndromes like diabetes and high blood pressure, Goel said he is interested in helping patients find ways to address their ongoing health issues.
“It’s a really rewarding experience to help people in need, especially those who might not be able to afford to see a doctor,” Goel said. “You feel that you’re making an impact on chronic health issues...which are becoming an epidemic across the country, and Rock County is no exception.”
The center is in the midst of expanding its dental capacity, and will recruit a fourth dentist in the spring.
