With all of the fun we have to offer in Minnesota, sometimes the easiest way to enjoy the events is to be prepared for the possible snafus that can come up. MxCSquared has pulled together a list of local facilities that may be of use in case of any problems that may come up.
The Minnesota Resistance team would prefer that none of these locations need to be called or visited the weekend of the anomaly, but in the case that it is needed, here’s the last, but certainly not least, of locations to go while in Minnesota……
PLACES WE HOPE NO ONE NEEDS TO VISIT:
Pediatric Urgent Care – Central Pediatrics. Offers walk-in pediatric urgent care until 9 pm on weekdays, and 9-5 on weekends. Technically located in St. Paul but only a few miles from downtown Minneapolis and accessible via mass transit. (651) 645-4693; located at 1536 Larpenteur Avenue West, St. Paul, MN 55113 https://www.centralpeds.com/priority-pediatrics
Adult Urgent Care. Urgent care offerings in downtown Minneapolis are limited on weekends; the Target at 900 Nicollet Mall offers a Minute Clinic on Saturdays from 8-3. Health Partners Riverside, located on the University of Minnesota campus just east of downtown Minneapolis, offers hours from 9-5 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday. Local clinic chain Allina has a number of clinics, with varying urgent care offerings.
Pharmacy. Target Pharmacy at 900 Nicollet Mall is open 7 days a week, including 9-6 on Saturday and 10-6 Sunday. The Walgreens pharmacy on Nicollet Mall is open Saturday but closed Sunday.
Minneapolis Children’s Hospital. A Level 1 child trauma ER only a few miles from downtown Minneapolis. Connected via skyway to The Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. 2525 Chicago Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55404
Hennepin County Medical Center. Emergency Room has both a Level 1 Trauma Center and a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center certification. Located in downtown Minneapolis.
EXCEPT! For broken bones and sprains, the general consensus among local parents is to head to the orthopedic urgent cares located at Twin Cities Orthopedics and Tria. Both have walk-in urgent care from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week. Wait times are shorter, and both cater to kids with special care packages and kid-size braces and other equipment.

We of the Minnesota Resistance hope you enjoy every moment of your time on your visit to Minnesota. If you don’t have a chance to enjoy some of the places and things we’ve listed, we hope they help entice you to come back again in the future to visit us again!
