MDH Convenience Clinic to temporarily relocate

MCDONOUGH CO., Ill. (NEWS3) –McDonough District Hospital officials announced changes will take place to the MDH Convenience Clinic for walk-in patients.

The convenience clinic will temporarily move from MDH Family Clinic to the former Internal Medicine Clinic.

Patients can still find the clinic in the Health Services Building 2, but on the first floor. MDH Medical Group Vice President Peter Rao said the decision was made to combat the spread of infectious conditions and better accommodate patients.

“Should we get patients suffering from influenza, fever, cough, or respiratory ailments, we can use the new temporary Convenience Clinic space on first floor to better meet those patients’ needs,” Rao said. “Moving the Convenience Clinic to first floor also allows us to keep the Family Clinic space to regularly scheduled appointments.”

Officials said based on the present symptoms, patients may be asked to wear protective masks.

MDH Convenience Clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. To reserve an appointment time, call 309-837-6937.
