Providing you with efficient care for a variety of common illnesses is the goal of the newest outpost of Door County Medical Center opening next month. On June 15th, Door County Medical Center will open its DirectCare clinic at the corner of State Highway 42/57 and Duluth Avenue. The new clinic will offer a number of health services to address ailments like bug bites, muscle pain, pink eye, and more while also providing point-of-care tests for pregnancies, COVID-19, flu, and rapid strep. Outpatient Services Manager Michelle Johnson says the hope is to get people treated right away so they can feel better quicker.
While the DirectCare clinic can take care of a lot of things, you will still have to go to the hospital for x-rays, stitches, and blood draws or if your child is under the age of one year.
