Compassionate, connected care at Allina Health

Longer wait times

Wait times are much longer than usual in our clinics, urgent care centers and emergency departments due to a surge in cases of influenza (flu), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other seasonal illnesses.


If you plan to visit an urgent care center within two hours of closing time, we ask that you call ahead to confirm that you can be seen. You may want to consider convenient alternatives like Everyday Online or virtual urgent care.


We appreciate your patience and apologize for any frustration or inconvenience you may experience as we work to provide care to everyone who needs it.

Minnesota Nurses Association Contract

Allina Health and Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) reached a tentative agreement on Tuesday, Dec. 6. The pending settlement is subject to ratification by union membership. MNA has rescinded all strike notices at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, United Hospital (St. Paul campus) and Mercy Hospital (Coon Rapids and Fridley campuses).


Allina Health is pleased with the settlement, which reflects the priorities of both parties and recognizes our commitment to our employees, patients and communities. We are thankful to be able to return our full attention to caring for the community at this time of increased illness and demand. 

Your health is our top priority. We’re dedicated to treating the whole you with expertise and compassion. 

We can help you find the right care when you need it.
