New urgent care hours at Hutchinson Health

SPONSORED POST – Beginning Saturday, April 29, urgent care services at Hutchinson Health will be available 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days per week.

Urgent care is ideal for dealing with minor injuries and illnesses quickly, without having to wait for a regular clinic appointment. Walk-in, extended-hour access is often convenient for patients with sprains, sore throats, earaches, minor injuries/cuts, fevers and other urgent – but non-emergency – conditions.

If a problem appears to be life-threatening (such as severe or sudden chest pain), it is best to go to an emergency room or call 911.

Hutchinson Health is located at 3 Century Avenue in Hutchinson, MN. The clinic can be reached at (320) 234-3290.

University of Minnesota Extension economists Brigid Tuck and Liz Templin will share information about McLeod County’s job trends, drivers of past economic changes, and the ripple effects of job changes in the county. Local businesses will also share their challenges in today’s labor market.
“This is a great opportunity for local government officials from throughout the county to hear about the economic connections between businesses, including agriculture, in our county.  It will also give us insights into how a growth or decline in employment in one area affects other businesses” said Joe Nagel, chair of the McLeod County Board of Commissioners.
The program is sponsored by the McLeod County Board of Commissioners.
