Optum's MedExpress to open urgent care center 1 mile from Mayo Clinic

MedExpress Urgent Care, a subsidiary of Optum Health, will open a walk-in clinic one mile away from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., according to the Post-Bulletin.

Morgantown, W. Va.-based MedExpress plans the 5,000-square-foot facility to include nine patient rooms and employ approximately 20 people who will treat minor illnesses and offer X-rays and other lab tests. MedExpress already has 10 quick care clinics in Minnesota.

"I'm not able to comment on the exact construction plan, but I can say we hope to open some time yet this year," said Ellen Dietrick of MedExpress. "We're really excited to join the community and we're thrilled to offer affordable, high quality healthcare."
