New Urgent Care Opens September 25th

Hutchinson Health’s newly remodeled Urgent Care will be opening on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. Located in the Northeast area of Hutchinson Health, Urgent Care will be open seven days a week from 8:00am to 7:00pm.

To make an appointment at either Hutchinson Health Clinic or Urgent Care, call (320) 234-3290

All patients arriving at Urgent Care will be seen by a triage nurse through our Care That Fits service, helping provide the appropriate level of care, assessing urgency, and identifying when Emergency Care is necessary. While patients should attempt to pick the most suitable option for treatment right away, a severely injured or seriously ill patient will be assessed and quickly sent to the emergency room.

When Should You Choose Hutchinson Health Clinic, Urgent Care or Emergency Room Care?

Emergency Room

Emergency care is the best choice for more life-threatening medical needs. Immediately go to the Emergency Room or call 911 for things such as difficulty breathing, severe chest pain, heart attack or stroke symptoms, serious head or eye injuries, severe burns, poisoning, and suspected drug overdose. Emergency Rooms are equipped to handle more serious cases and provide an entire medical team to respond to the emergency situation.

Urgent Care

If suspect your medical situation is an emergency and you would not contemplate calling 911, then Urgent Care may be the option for you to choose first. A triage nurse will help you assess the situation and get you to the level of care that best fits your need.  Hutchinson Health Urgent Care provides the type of acute medical care or routine injury treatment that a primary care physician would usually perform in a clinic visit and sees patients in the order of severity.

Clinic

If your medical needs are less immediate and you want to insure you see your primary care physician, it’s best to make an appointment at the clinic. Also, if your illness or medical need is less urgent and it’s during clinic hours, call to schedule an appointment or ask to see an open care physician. Our scheduling staff can often help you find a provider with availability within a short amount of time.
