CANNON FALLS, Minn. — Earlier this summer, Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls expanded services on Saturdays to include primary care appointments in addition to Urgent Care. Saturday hours will also be modified beginning Saturday, October 1, 2016 to offer patients not only convenient access but also a better experience with shorter wait times. Saturday clinic hours will be:
Primary care appointments: 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Urgent care (walk-in): 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
“Expanding Saturday clinic hours has been received very well among our patients,” says Glenn Christian, operations manager at Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls. “We’ve listened to feedback and have had some time to assess workflows, patient volumes and staffing needs. We’ll offer an even better experience by designating walk-in and scheduled appointment times.”
Primary care providers from Mayo Clinic Health System in Cannon Falls and Zumbrota are collaborating to see patients on Saturdays. Routine health care offered to patients from birth and older during primary care appointments include:
- Preventive screenings
- Well-child visits
- Physicals for annual care, sports, school or employment (does not include DOT exams)
