HOISINGTON —The early bird gets the worm at Clara Barton Medical Clinic. Beginning April 1, Clara Barton will hold a Walk-In Clinic, starting at 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., Monday through Friday.
The Walk-In Clinic will provide medical services to patients with acute illnesses, such as cold, flu, fever, infection, rash, nausea, ear and sinus infection, urinary tract infection, and upper respiratory infection.
“We are pleased to be able to offer another service option to our patients,” said Deb Hawkins, clinic administrator. “By adding the Walk-In Clinic, we are making medical care more accessible to patients in our community.”
“With this clinic, along with our existing Family Practice clinic, Clara Barton will offer patients a chance to receive medical care on their terms, when their schedules allow it,” explained Curt Colson, president and CEO of Clara Barton Hospital.
The Walk-In Clinic will be staffed by Clara Barton’s trusted family care practitioners, Dr. T. Scott Webb, Dr. Nathan Knackstedt, Phil Barnes, PA-C, Deb Brockel, PA, and Kristin Ohnmacht, PA-C. The regular family practice clinic will operate as usual, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., to see patients for any and all other medical care.
Treatment for chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or chronic pain, medication refills, yearly physicals, women’s care, DOT physicals, and well-child checkups will not be provided during the Walk-In Clinic. Patients are encouraged to make an appointment for these types of medical care.
