Hy-vee clinic

Ottumwa and surrounding area residents will soon have another convenient option for treatment when they are feeling under the weather and don’t have quick access to their primary care provider.

Ottumwa Regional Health Center through their contracted partner Ottumwa Health Group, LLC will open its first in-store medical clinic in June 2016 at the Hy-Vee grocery store located at 2453 N. Court St. in Ottumwa. This will be the second convenient care clinic opened in the Ottumwa area by Ottumwa Health Group, LLC.  The Ottumwa Walk-In Clinic is another fast access point for patient care located at 1255 Theatre Drive.

“As we look ahead to the future of health care, access to convenient and affordable services will be more important than ever, as well as prevention.  Ottumwa Regional Health Center through Ottumwa Health Group, LLC is proud to lead the way in southeast Iowa and collaborate with Hy-Vee to offer even more access to the population we care for,” said Phil Noel, CEO of Ottumwa Regional Health Center.

The clinic will be staffed by advanced nurse practitioners and offer treatment with no appointment for non-life threatening conditions to patients over 6 months of age, such as sore throats, sinus infections, colds and flu, minor cuts and sprains, flu shots, blood pressure checks, routine labs and other general care.

“Hy-Vee’s top priority is taking care of our customers.  With the new convenient care retail clinic in our store, our customers will not only have access to our in-store dietitians and pharmacists, they will also be able to seek health, wellness and preventative care services all in one stop,” said Amy Kramer, North Hy-Vee store director.  “We are excited to work with Ottumwa Health Group, LLC so we can continue to help our customers lead healthier, happier lives.”
