FREMONT, Neb. – Methodist Health System is excited to announce that its Fremont urgent care clinic has moved to a convenient standalone location.
Methodist Urgent Care – Fremont is now caring for patients of all ages in the former MedExpress urgent care clinic building at 1240 E. 23rd St. The clinic is staffed with physicians and health care professionals ready to treat a variety of minor injuries and illnesses, including:
⦁ Cuts and bruises
⦁ Cold and flu symptoms
⦁ Minor skin infections and rashes
⦁ Pink eye
⦁ Sinus infections
⦁ Sore throats

In addition to urgent care, the clinic will offer occupational health services to clients in the community.
“This clinic location not only connects people with urgent care when they need it but also helps Methodist Fremont Health better meet our community’s evolving health care needs,” said Brett Richmond, president and CEO of Methodist Fremont Health.
