Quick Care Expands to Saturdays

Wednesday, 15 February 2017

Beginning Saturday, March 4th, Avera Medical Group Spencer (AMGS) will expand its current Quick Care services to the weekend, providing services from 8 am – 1 pm each Saturday. Quick Care services are designed to provide same day diagnosis and treatment of minor illnesses.


“Quick Care is specifically for health concerns which feel urgent, yet are not an emergency,” explained Nate McCormick, AMGS clinic manager. “For example, patients with health issues such as low-grade fevers, bothersome earaches, minor injuries and sore throats can be treated quickly and be on their way to feeling better sooner. Quick Care does not replace the emergency room for critical care nor does it take the place of routine appointments and more comprehensive scheduled exams with a patient’s physician.”


Currently Avera Medical Group Spencer, a department of Spencer Hospital, runs Quick Care hours from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm each Monday through Thursday and will also be adding Friday hours from 3:30 – 5 pm.


“With our expanded hours we will offer both walk-in opportunities and also will accept phone calls to help patients determine the best time frame for those quick, same day visits,” McCormick said. “Quick Care visits will be limited to addressing a specific symptom with follow-up visits scheduled if a patient has more complex health care needs.”


Physicians and advanced practice providers of Avera Medical Group Spencer staff the Quick Care clinic, which assures quality of services provided. Quick Care clinic visits are recorded in the patients Avera Chart health record, which enhances continuity of patient care. Also, Avera Medical Group Spencer accepts and files insurance for Quick Care visits.


Avera Medical Group Spencer is a family practice group which includes 13 physicians trained in family medicine and six family medicine advance practice providers.
