Orange City Area Health System is opening a new Walk-In Clinic in Orange City at 719 8th Street SE, in the Holland Plaza building. It is scheduled to open on Monday, December 2. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 5-9pm and Saturday-Sunday 1-9pm. The Walk-In Clinic is designed to offer treatment for common, non-life-threatening ailments including severe cold or flu, earache, minor sprains, fever, mild eye injury, severe sore throat, and minor cuts and burns. It is not intended to replace emergency care, which is offered at the health system ER 24/7/365, and does not offer radiology/Xray or advanced lab services. The health system’s three family medicine clinics, in Orange City, Hospers, and Paullina, provide wellness exams, physicals, labs and radiology, prenatal care, pediatrics, behavioral health, and other services by appointment.
“The Walk-In Clinic fills a gap in service for evenings and weekends,” explains Steve Walhof, Director of Clinics at Orange City Area Health System. “We are listening to the communities we serve, addressing their health needs with different levels of care. We know that the Walk-In Clinic will be a great addition to our full-spectrum healthcare and wellness services.”
The public is invited to an Open House/Grand Opening of the new facility on Friday, December 6, from 10am to 3pm. There will be a ribbon cutting at 10am, followed by a presentation and tours of the clinic, with refreshments and an opportunity to learn more about the services offered.
“We look forward to introducing this new service,” added Marty Guthmiller, CEO of Orange City Area Health System. “It will support our goal of providing the right care at the right place at the right time.”
