MDH Convenient Care Making the Move to MDH Family Clinic
MACOMB, Ill. – The McDonough District Hospital Convenient Care clinic is making the move to the MDH campus, relocating to the Family Clinic on the second floor inside Health Services Building 2. The last day for Convenient Care inside Hy-Vee is June 11.
Starting July 1, the same hours and days of operations and the same walk-in services offered from the Convenient Care clinic, will be available at the MDH Family Clinic.
Any patient 18 months and older needing medical care and treatment for uncomplicated minor illnesses, injury and skin conditions can visit MDH Family Clinic for walk-in appointments, and the expanded hours of operations will remain the same: Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. and Friday-Sunday 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
According to MDH interim Vice President for Ambulatory Services Randy Buchnowski, the move will actually benefit patients needing services.
“We analyzed the pros and cons of the current Convenient Care location. Moving the clinic to our MDH campus will benefit our patients. Our Family Clinic staff working with walk-in patients will continue to treat minor medical needs, and if additional services are needed they can go across the parking lot to the hospital for laboratory, radiology, and emergency services,” said Buchnowski. “The best part of the move, MDH will continue to offer the same hours of service during the evenings and weekends with all services located in one centralized location.”
The cost of a walk-in visit is typically less than an Emergency Room visit. Patients may be asked to pay any insurance co-pay at the time of service.
