We're Open:

The Coronavirus/COVID-19 is weighing on everyone's minds and updates and changes are happening daily. The Urgency Room is staying on top of the latest information and how it affects us here in Minnesota and across the country.

We're open daily to provide medical care for serious injuries or illnesses that do not require an ambulance.  

Adjusted Hours:

Eagan & Vadnais Heights:  Noon to 9pm, Daily
We have adjusted our hours and are not treating patients with respiratory concerns at these two locations. We’re doing our best to care for non-respiratory concerns here because we know life happens.  You or your family members may suffer an illness or injury not related to COVID-19. We are here to continue to provide you with medical care in those moments. 

Woodbury:  8am to 10pm, Daily 
We will continue with normal business hours in Woodbury. If you are experiencing respiratory issues such as a cough or shortness of breath, please go to the Woodbury facility. We will offer limited testing for COVID-19 at this location only.  COVID testing is only available for patients with qualifying symptoms or concerns.  We encourage patients with non-respiratory concerns to consider visiting Eagan or Vadnais Heights.

Where to Go for Care:

If you suspect you have the coronavirus/COVID-19:

  • Visit your nearest hospital emergency room or call 911 if your symptoms are serious or life-threatening.
  • Visit our Woodbury location if you are experiencing non-life-threatening symptoms and suspect you may have the coronavirus/COVID-19.
  • Call your healthcare provider to see what care they are offering. Most are providing telemedicine phone or video calls for people who don’t feel they need to see a provider immediately.
  • If you are concerned you have the COVID-19 virus, take advantage of telemedicine options or call your doctor.

What You Can Do:

Remain calm and educate yourself about the symptoms and care of COVID-19. The link above will provide you with the most up-to-date information in Minnesota along with online resources and testing information for those who think they either have the coronavirus/COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has it. 

In addition, there are several ways you can stop the spread:

Protect Yourself:
Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. 
Practice social distancing, stand at least 6 feet from other people.
Stay away from large events such as concerts and sporting events.
Try not to touch your face - it’s harder than you think.
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches and especially your cell phone.

Protect Others:
If you feel sick, isolate yourself from other people, especially the elderly, for 14 days.
Wear a mask to cover your cough (masks decrease the spread of the virus).
If you don’t need urgent medical care, stay home. This decreases your risk of getting the virus and your risk of spreading it if you are infected.

We will continue to do our part at The Urgency Room to stay on top of the latest information.  Our number one priority is protecting our patients, staff, and the communities we serve.
