Emergency Rooms are busy places

If you have a major medical emergency, the emergency room is the best place for you. However, there are many medical conditions which end up in the ER which can be taken care of more efficiently-- and more economically-- in an urgent care center.

UrgentMED is such a facility. Our clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings. We can take care of a wide variety of illnesses and injuries, suture lacerations, splint minor fractures and sprains, freeze warts, perform sports physicals for athletes, DOT physicals for truck drivers, BasicMed physicals for pilots, and even preoperative physicals for those needing surgery-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.

If you need an emergency room, we have two excellent facilities in Fargo. If your medical need fits more appropriately with a walk-in, urgent care facility, UrgentMED is available to you.

Pandemic Update

COVID-19 cases remain significantly elevated across our region, even if it may not feel that way since the majority of cases go unreported due to the wide availability of in-home testing. However, thanks to safe and highly effective antiviral medications such as Paxlovid and synthetic monoclonal antibiotics, we now have excellent outpatient treatment options that have significantly reduced the rates of hospitalization and death.

Now, an updated bivalent mRNA vaccine has been authorized by the FDA and is becoming increasingly available in our area. This booster vaccine results in the immune system generating antibodies against both the original SARS-Co-V 2 spike protein as well as the newer BA.4 and BA.5 omicron-lineage spike protein. It’s the BA.4 and BA.5 variants which are causing the majority of current infections.

COVID-19 is still exacting a tremendous economic toll on the world.

6.5 million have died world-wide and more than 300 Americans continue to die every day from COVID-19.

From time to time, history gives us a challenge which requires meaningful, selfless participation by every one. COVID-19 is ours.

Stay up to date on vaccinations. Follow the advice of trusted medical professionals.Keep yourself and your neighbors safe.
