Local Physicians Open Offices to Orthopedic Urgent Care

Local Physicians Open Offices to Orthopedic Urgent Care

Gillette, Wyoming—As an alternative to going to the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Emergency Department or Campbell County Medical Group Walk-in Clinic, and to protect our community from coronavirus (COVID-19), local orthopedic physicians are opening their offices for orthopedic urgent care.

The offices encourage everyone to call before coming to a clinic for an orthopedic urgent care visit. Orthopdic urgent care locations include:

Orthopedic urgent care is only for patients without a fever or respiratory symptoms—such as congestion, cough, fever over 100.0, runny nose, shortness of breath, or a sore throat. All patients are screened for respiratory symptoms prior to entering a clinic; temperature is also taken. All staff, nurses, physician assistants and surgeons are screened for respiratory symptoms twice per day with temperature checks.

Orthopedic urgent care is for adults and children with:

  • Possible broken bones
  • Cuts or lacerations on arms or legs
  • Injuries to arms and legs
  • Sprains
  • Workplace injuries

Call 911 for:

  • Broken hips
  • Open fractures (where the fracture penetrates the skin)
  • Spine fractures
  • Head injuries
