Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center has announce that the walk-in clinic at the HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center will be open extended hours Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday, Sept. 1. Hours for both days will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. The clinic will be closed on Labor Day, Sept. 2.

HRRMC’s walk-in clinic, 28374 County Road 317, is open to the public and appointments are not needed. The walk-in clinic treats common medical issues like minor burns, sprains, earaches, pink eye, sore throats and skin rashes. While the clinic makes an effort to take patients in the order of arrival, patients with more urgent medical needs may be taken first.

The walk-in clinic does not serve as an emergency room. Any emergencies will be directed to the HRRMC Emergency Department in Salida.

Walk-in clinic services are charged the same as the Buena Vista Health Center’s primary care services during normal business hours. The Buena Vista Health Center participates in Medicare and Health First Colorado (Medicaid).
