BOONE, Iowa—It actually took affect Monday. The Boone County Hospital has expanded their hours for the Walk-In Clinic. The Clinic is located at 120 South Story Street, Boone. New hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday.
Due to the success of the clinic over the past six months, BCH Administration felt it was necessary to expand the hours.

No appointment is necessary.
Conditions that can be treated in the clinic are sore throat and sinus infection, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sprains and strains, splint application, urinary tract infection, migraine, upper respiratory infection, simple wounds/lacerations, skin rash and infections, nose bleed packing, cuts and minor burns, allergic reaction to a bug bite, ear infection, and superficial foreign body removal. More serious illnesses and injuries will need to be seen in the Emergency Room (ER).
