In order to best take care for all our patients in a safe environment, we have designed our Highland Clinic as a Respiratory Care Clinic open M-F from 9 am – 3 pm; hours may vary. Starting April 6, 2020, our Highland Clinic location will focus on taking care of patients who need to be seen for fevers, coughs, shortness of breath and sore throats. Our patient’s safety is our #1 goal and we feel this is in the best interest of our patients and staff to keep everyone as safe as possible. You must have a scheduled appointment to be seen at the Respiratory Care Clinic by calling Scheduling at 651-788-4444.  Please see the Highland Clinic page for more detailed information.
