BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — A walk-in clinic will open at the Mall of America in November, offering services for both workers and customers alike.
The new clinic was announced Tuesday, July 16, and will be part of M Health Fairview, a partnership between Fairview Health Services and the University of Minnesota. To be located on the third floor of the Bloomington mall’s east end, the 2,300-square-foot location will have five examination rooms. There will also be a laboratory space for tests, a radiology room and a pharmacy, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
“This is a really creative partnership. The Mall of America identified a need for this, and we saw it as an opportunity to expand our primary care reach,” said Laura Reed, chief operating officer and chief nursing executive at Fairview.
Treatment for minor illnesses and injuries will be available, in addition to travel health consultations for international travelers, physicals for school, vaccinations and employer drug screenings.
The shopping center — with its 520 stores, restaurants and attractions — is one of Minnesota’s most recognized landmarks and attracts about 40 million visitors a year.
The clinic’s hours, once open, will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
