"The needs of the community continue to grow and we are excited to be able to offer these additional services to our community members, patients and staff."
The pharmacy will be open 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m, and 1 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday starting July 29. Pharmacy staff will have access to a broad range of medications and specialty medications, and will work in collaboration with Mayo Clinic in Rochester to fulfill patient needs.
The Wellness Center will be open 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. Memberships will be available for purchase during the open house on July 28 and during staffed hours starting on July 31.
