The new state-of-the-art urgent care clinic at Ministry Door County Medical Center is now serving patients seven days a week in Sturgeon Bay. The urgent care clinic has some in the community wondering what type of sickness, infection or injury should be directed to this new area of the hospital.
Dr. Keith Anclam, experienced local physician is leading this new effort by Ministry Door County Medical Center. He explained what type of patients he is seeing most.
When Is It Urgent?
Anclam said their goal is to diagnose and treat you right away and provide the very best care. The urgent care clinic is across the hall from the emergency room so if treatment turns into something “emergent” instead of “urgent” patients will be wheeled into E.R. in seconds not minutes. That is what Anclam said sets MDCMC’s urgent care apart from anything else in Door or Kewaunee Counties.
Time Is Everything
Dr. Anclam said the feedback from the community in regards to this new service has been extremely positive.
