Hours of operation at Hettinger clinic will change

Effective July 3, West River Health Services will be making changes to better accommodate patients in the Hettinger Clinic.  Walk-in patients will be accepted Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Night Clinic will be discontinued.  The emergency room will continue to be available seven days/week and 24 hours/day.

Walk-in visits are not intended to treat chronic conditions or serious medical conditions.  The first available provider will see walk–in patients and delays may occur since patients with scheduled appointments are given priority.  Patients are strongly encouraged to schedule a visit with the provider of their choice when possible.

Examples of walk-in visits include sore throat, earache, cold/flu symptoms, cough, sinus or respiratory infection, sprain or strain, small cuts, back pain, migraine, dizziness, rash, urinary tract infection, and minor burns.
