MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. 3/29/2019  Allina Health will open its sixth and newest Everyday Clinic on April 8 inside the Plymouth Hy-Vee, located at 16705 County Road 24, Plymouth. Allina Health opened its first five Allina Health Everyday Clinics inside the Eagan, Lakeville, Robbinsdale, New Hope and Brooklyn Park Hy-Vee stores. Like all Everyday clinics, no appointment is necessary.

Patients can schedule an Allina Health Everyday Clinic appointment online through their Allina Health account or at allinahealth.org/everydayclinic at all of our six sites. By offering our patients the option to schedule ahead of time, we’re making it even easier for them to receive care that’s most convenient for them.

"With today’s busy lifestyles, access to convenient and affordable health care services where people live, work and shop is more important than ever before," said Dave Slowinske, senior vice president with Allina Health. The Allina Health Everyday Clinic will complement many of the services Hy-Vee already offers in its stores, which includes registered dietitians, pharmacists and healthy food choices.

"Research has shown that today’s consumers are seeking care at grocery stores and stand-alone locations because they offer more convenient hours, lower cost and no appointment needed," said Slowinske. “We’re excited to offer more ways people can access our health care services," said Slowinske."

Our Everyday Clinics is one part of our long-term convenience care strategy to help patients and consumers better understand health care options available to them that best meet their needs. These clinics complement our Everyday Online and Everyday on Wheels services. Visit allinahealth.org/everyday to learn more about our Everyday convenience care initiatives.

“Hy-Vee is committed to expanding the health-related services and offerings in our stores,” said Aaron Wiese, Hy-Vee’s vice president of HealthMarkets and health and wellness strategy. “Hy-Vee is pleased to continue working with Allina Health to offer an easy way for people to seek treatment or learn more about prevention so they can lead healthy lives.”

The Allina Health Everyday Clinics are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The clinics are staffed by Allina Health board-certified advance practice clinicians and offer convenient care for minor illnesses and rapid laboratory testing for patients aged 18 months and older. Additional primary care services continue to be offered at nearby Allina Health clinics located in Maple Grove and Plymouth.
