Mayo Clinic Express Care now more convenient than ever
9/9/2019 by Jane Myers, APRN, CNP
Mayo Clinic Express Care (MCEC) has always provided go-to, walk-in care for common health concerns. Now all locations have added exams needed for youth sports and camps, as well as TB testing, making Express Care even more convenient for you and your family.
Sports/camp exams. These exams are available for youth 11-18 (sorry, no college students), and cover the areas required by the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL). Please print and fill out the MSHSL's annual exam questionnaire before arriving at the exam, bring any other paperwork from the sports organization or camp, along with a list of medications. Your child should wear exam-appropriate clothes — and don't forget their glasses!
TB testing. You now can be tested for TB (tuberculosis), which includes skin testing and results that need to be read 48 to 72 hours after administering the test; both of these services are provided. However, Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System employees are not eligible and should receive this test through Employee and Occupational Health.
Care is available at all MCEC sites for patients 18 months through 75 years, unless otherwise noted. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis; you just need to sign up at the kiosk when you arrive. If you're already a Mayo Clinic patient, you can schedule a visit by logging into Patient Online Services.Visit the community health website for a full listing of hours, locations and services.
