FAIRMONT, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont is opening its new Urgent Care on Friday, Nov. 2. The Clinic at Walmart will discontinue operations the same day, which is part of the transition plan that Mayo Clinic Health System announced in May.
“Urgent Care allows our patients access to additional same-day care right here in Fairmont,” says Marie Morris, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont medical director. “We’re able to treat patients of all ages and those with slightly more complex needs in the Urgent Care setting. The Clinic at Walmart didn’t provide as many treatment options for patients and had certain age restrictions.”
Urgent Care covers the same services available at The Clinic at Walmart — such as treatment of allergies, bladder infections, ear and eye infections, strep throat and rashes — but also handles minor medical treatment for back and muscle pain, cuts, low-grade burns, ear aches, skin conditions, sprains, joint pain and upper respiratory infections. Urgent Care treats patients of all ages. The Urgent Care practice will be housed within the clinic space on the Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont campus. The location affords patients more efficient access to support from nurses, registration staff, and other clinic and hospital-based services.
Urgent Care will be open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. No appointment is necessary. Patients should enter through the main clinic doors on the north side of the facility, which is located at 800 Medical Center Drive.
Express Care Online remains available through Mayo Clinic’s Patient Online Services portal as a convenient, online care option for 14 common conditions for patients ages 18 months through 75 years.
Mayo Clinic Health System consists of clinics, hospitals and other health care facilities that serve the health care needs of people in more than 60 communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. The community-based providers, paired with the resources and expertise of Mayo Clinic, enable patients in the region to receive the highest-quality health care close to home.
