Floyd Valley Clinics’ urgent care services are provided Monday – Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. by trained staff (physicians, physician assistants or certified nursing practitioners) who treat minor and moderate illnesses such as fevers, sore throats, colds, flu, cuts, sprains or strains.
Patients can visit the Urgent Care Office – instead of the Emergency Department - without an appointment, though appointments can be made to reduce wait times. If you can’t wait to see your regular provider tomorrow, start with Urgent Care.
Another resource available through Avera is the Ask-A-Nurse telephone service. Avera nurses will ask you questions about what is going on with you or your child and help you decide how soon you should be seen. Ask-A-Nurse services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-658-3535.
