Weekend Clinic available over the New Year holiday weekend for non-emergencies

Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon will again be holding its regular Weekend Clinic over the New Year holiday weekend. The Weekend Clinic will be available Saturday, December 31, Sunday, January 1 and Monday, January 2, from 1-5 p.m. each day for all non-emergencies.

Weekend Clinics are held every Saturday and Sunday at Veterans Memorial Hospital, all year long, from 1-5 p.m. each day for non-emergencies. Non-emergencies are considered ailments that could be seen by a physician in a clinic and do not require an emergency room visit, such as minor injuries, sore throats and/or ear aches that cannot wait until regular clinic business hours. These Weekend Clinics save families the cost of regular emergency room fees on the weekends when the other local clinics are closed.

Anyone needing to utilize these special weekend clinics over the holiday is asked to enter the hospital through the main entrance and register with the receptionist. Walk-ins are welcome.
