Telehealth and In-clinic Appointments

At this time, we are mostly scheduling telehealth appointments—online visits with health care providers using secure audio/visual communications. If it is determined during your telehealth appointment that you need to be seen in person, we will direct you to the appropriate care. 

Some clinics and services have limited availability for in-clinic urgent and elective care appointments.

To schedule an appointment, call 612-625-3222.

If your health care concern is urgent, or you are experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms, call our nurse line for guidance, 612-625-7900.

Wearing Masks and Social Distancing to Protect Other People

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that you should cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when in public, or when you are around other people.

You DO NOT need to use a face mask meant for a healthcare worker.

A cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing. Keep six feet of distance between yourself and other people. How to wear a cloth face cover.
