FAIRMONT, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont is expanding its weekday Urgent Care hours and adding a full-time nurse practitioner, which will mean better access to same-day treatment for patients.
Beginning Sept. 4, Urgent Care hours will be 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays. Previously, hours were 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays. Weekend hours will remain the same: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Additionally, Emily Fett, nurse practitioner, has transitioned from Family Medicine to Urgent Care to help meet the increased demand for Urgent Care services.
“We have many patients wanting to take advantage of same-day care through Urgent Care, and we are happy to be making the changes necessary to meet that demand,” says Marie Morris, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont medical director. “We are confident that the additional hours and Emily’s transition to Urgent Care will mean patients will receive care much more quickly.”
Urgent Care covers such services as treatment of allergies, bladder infections, ear and eye infections, strep throat and rashes, 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 is housed within the clinic space on the Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont campus. 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.
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.
