Don’t swim here.

The North Dakota Department of Health has asked physicians to notify their patients about algae blooms occurring in some North Dakota lakes. The warm weather has encouraged the growth of a particular type of blue-green algae called cyanobacteria. Often the color of pea soup, these types of algae can produce a toxin which can irritate the skin and mucous membranes. If inhaled, the toxins can lead to respiratory infection. These problems are not common, but prevention is key. In other words, if your favorite beach is showing a green algae bloom like the one in the photograph above, swim someplace else!

UrgentMED is located in theUniversity Medical Center.

Emergency Rooms are busy places.

If you have a major medical emergency, the emergency room is the best place for you. However, there are many medical conditions which end up in the ER which can be taken care of more efficiently-- and more economically-- in an urgent care center.

UrgentMED is such a facility. Our clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings. We can take care of a wide variety of illnesses, suture lacerations, splint minor fractures and sprains, freeze warts, draw blood, take x-rays, perform sports physicals for athletes, DOT physicals for truck drivers, and even preoperative physicals for those needing surgery-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.

If you need an emergency room, we have two excellent facilities in Fargo. If your medical need fits more appropriately with a walk-in, urgent care facility, UrgentMED is available to you.
