NEW PRAGUE, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague today announced plans to expand same-day services by opening an Urgent Care location by April 2019. Mayo Clinic Health System will transition out of its Express Care practice inside the Coborn’s grocery store shortly before opening Urgent Care, which will be located in the specialty clinic on the medical center campus. The same providers and nurses from the Express Care in Coborn’s will help staff Urgent Care.
“Our community is in need of more expansive same-day health care options that are available during the weekday, as well as after hours and on weekends,” says Martin Herrmann, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague medical director. “With Urgent Care, we’ll be able to treat patients of all ages and those with more complex conditions. Additionally, locating Urgent Care on our medical center campus will allow for more efficient patient support from nurses, registration staff, and our Lab and Radiology teams, as well as better access to other clinic and hospital-based services.”
Urgent Care covers the same services available at Express Care, such as treatment of allergies, bladder infections, ear and eye infections, strep throat and rashes. However, Urgent Care also handles same-day minor medical treatment for back and muscle pain, cuts and minor burns, ear aches, skin conditions, sprains and joint pain, upper respiratory infections and bronchitis.
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.
