Walk-in medical care in Mitchell is available during evening and weekend hours through Avera Urgent Care, 200 E. Havens St.
On Feb. 1, the name of this service is changing to AveraNow, and it will move to the Grassland
Health Campus in March.
"AveraNow is a name that's synonymous with convenience. Avera has both the AveraNow video visits, available 24/7 through your smartphone or device, as well as AveraNow clinics," said Ryan Raml, primary care division manager, Avera Medical Group Mitchell.
Hours of the AveraNow walk-in clinic are noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to
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.
