5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Walk-in care is designed to provide medical care for acute illnesses, such as sore throats, ear infections, injuries, upper respiratory infections, bladder infections, minor cuts that might require stitches, sprains or strains, influenza, allergies and rashes. X-ray and laboratory are available.

Walk-in care is not a substitute for seeing a regular primary care provider, and routine or preventive medical care is not offered through AveraNow.

Emergency care at Avera Queen of Peace Hospital is designed for just that-an emergency. Appropriate for emergency room care include severe burns, lacerations, allergic reactions or

diabetic reactions, possible symptoms of stroke, electrical shock, pregnancy complications, seizure, mental health emergencies or suicide attempts, overdose or poison ingestion, fainting, motor vehicle accidents or major head injuries.

The AveraNow walk-in clinic in Mitchell can be reached by calling (605) 990-4357.
