(ABC 6 NEWS) - A Mayo Clinic Health System is facing two more charges of child sexual assault. 

Joseph Poterucha had a hearing in a La Crosse court on Wednesday. 

He is facing two new charges of 1st-degree child sexual assault after appearing on Oct. 15 for the first charge of 1st-degree child sexual assault. 

An investigation revealed there were more victims, that is why there are two new charges added. 

The judge set a $25,000 bond and ordered no contact with minors. 

He posted bond on Monday. 

Mayo Clinic Health System released a statement last week saying the charges were not related to the care of his patients and the health system placed him on administrative leave. 

He will be back in court on Nov. 3.
