Stellis Health is committed to caring for you and your loved ones, just as we’ve done for the past 70 years. Over the past year and a half, we have adjusted our operations so that we can continue to provide excellent care. Our staff is working tirelessly for our community and, like so many businesses, are stepping up amidst staff shortages.
Urgent care was temporarily consolidated to our Buffalo location last December and we’ve experienced extremely high patient volumes these past few weeks. This is resulting in longer than normal wait times and lines out the door near closing time – not something we want our patients or staff to sustain. We are doing everything we can to accommodate patients in our walk-in urgent care, but we feel it is time to revise our approach to care to ensure continued, outstanding care that you expect at Stellis Health.
Effective October 4, 2021, urgent care will be available by appointment only. These appointments are reserved for urgent, non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses that can’t wait another day. We will still have a dedicated staff and schedule for Urgent Care outside of our regular clinic to care for you. The schedule will be completely open at the start of each day for urgent care needs. Spreading out patients with reserved times will help ease the long wait times and surges in demand for urgent care, for the sake of our patients and staff. For availability and scheduling urgent care, you can call 763-684-3696. Current urgent care operating hours at our Buffalo location are:
Monday – Thursday: 12:00 – 6:00 pm
Friday: 12:00 – 5:00 pm
Saturday – Sunday: 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding that our staff is strained and ask that you continue to be supportive as we operate the only urgent care site in the area.
