Fort HealthCare Offers Temporary Non COVID-19 Walk-In Clinic

To help control the potential spread of COVID-19 and meet the needs of our patients, Fort HealthCare is offering a temporary Walk-In Clinic. The Walk-In Clinic will provide non- emergent and non COVID-19 related services without an appointment and on a first come, first serve basis. There is limited availability for patients under 18 years of age, so please call ahead if the patient is under 18.

Walk-In Clinic details are as follows:
• HOURS: 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday
• LOCATION: 1520 Madison Ave, Fort Atkinson – “Integrated Family Care” Clinic next to Goodwill
• SERVICES: Care for non-life threatening, but urgent, minor medical needs.
• PHONE: 920-563-5500

In alignment with the CDC’s social/physical distancing guidelines, this will allow non-emergent patients to be seen in a separate space from those with precautions to help keep our patients, visitors, team and communities safe from the potential spread of COVID-19.

If you are experiencing a fever, cough or shortness of breath please contact your primary care provider in advance of visiting or you can do a virtual health visit at e+CARE at www.forthealthcare.com/e+care to screen for COVID-19.

Examples of urgent, minor medical needs are:
• Earache and ear infections
• Sore throat
• Allergies or asthma
• Urinary tract infections (UTI)
• Minor cuts and lacerations
• Sprains or strains
• Insect bites or stings
• Poison Ivy or other skin rashes
• Minor burns

The Walk-In Clinic is NOT designed for patients with the following:
• Symptoms or suspicion of COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
• Life-threatening medical problems
• Conditions requiring narcotic prescriptions

Anyone having a serious medical emergency should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately. Fort HealthCare still offers 24/7 emergency services.

All Fort HealthCare clinics are accepting scheduled appointments, so please schedule appointments as usual for all other medical issues. We will reach out to you if there are any changes to your appointment.

To stay up to date on COVID-19, the CDC offers updated information about the spread of the virus in the U.S. and can be followed at www.cdc.gov.

The best ways to avoid illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Washing hands frequently for 20 seconds or longer, using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands are good practices to use.
