Essentia's orthopedic urgent care now open

Created: September 14, 2020 11:03 AM

Essentia Health's orthopedic urgent care center in Duluth is reopening 5 months after closing due to COVID-19 concerns.
Located across from the Miller Hill Mall, it is the only urgent care solely dedicated to orthopedic injuries in the Twin Ports.That means they deal with patients who experience sudden muscle, bone, or joint injuries.


The opening doesn't come without some adjustments: some changes to their service are that you have to call the number 218-576-0680 before entering, you have to wait in your car until they called back to go inside the building and you must be wearing a mask before walking into the clinic.

Once inside, all patients will be temperature checked and taken to an exam room by a staff member.
