Summer has struck.

In North Dakota we get plenty of cold weather and summer is something to which we look forward with great anticipation. However, the heatwave which has settled over our region is potentially dangerous.

Watch out for heat-related illness!

-Drink plenty of (non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic) fluids

-Stay out of the direct sun

-Wear lightweight, loose fitting clothing

-Stay under air-conditioning

-Take a cool shower or bath

-NEVER leave ANYONE unattended in a closed vehicle

Emergency Rooms are busy places.

If you have a major medical emergency, the emergency room is the best place for you. However, there are many medical conditions which end up in the ER which can be taken care of more efficiently-- and more appropriately-- in an urgent care center.

UrgentMED is such a facility. Our clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings. We can take care of a wide variety of illnesses, suture lacerations, splint minor fractures and sprains, freeze warts, draw blood, take x-rays, perform sports physicals for athletes, DOT physicals for truck drivers, and even preoperative physicals for those needing surgery-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.

Walk-in medical care for everyone.

Open seven days a week in south Fargo.
