Changes to Hours of Operations at OMC Locations
Current as of August 31, 2020
Our patients’ safety as well as the safety of our staff is a high priority. Olmsted Medical Center has taken additional steps to provide a safe environment. We want to assure our patients that we are available to provide primary care, specialty care, lab or radiology services, acute care, and emergency care as well as screening procedures, surgery, or any type of elective procedure.
Although we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, OMC wants patients to make their healthcare needs a priority again. It is important to not postpone medical care or ignore symptoms. The best way to prevent more serious medical issues: early detection and treatment.
Patients should bring and wear a mask for their appointment as well as observe social distancing in our lobby and waiting areas.
