Kingman, Arizona, December 23, 2020 – Beginning Saturday, December 26, 2020, KRMC Urgent Care will reduce its hours of operation. Urgent Care will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
KRMC Urgent Care will be closed for Christmas Day on Friday, December 25, and reopen Saturday, December 26 with the new hours. The urgent care center will also be closed on New Year’s Day.
As COVID hospitalizations continue to rise, these operational changes will allow staff to be redeployed to other clinical areas in the hospital.
“Right now, we are focused on placing our employees where their skills and expertise are most needed,” said Randy Beck, Director of Physician Services. “Urgent Care will remain open seven days a week with slightly reduced hours so that patients with urgent, non-respiratory conditions can still come in for medical care.”
KRMC encourages people with respiratory or flu-like symptoms to stay home and consult a health care provider using the Care Anywhere telemedicine platform. To start a visit online, go to azkrmc.com and click on “Care Anywhere.”
Those with severe symptoms – such as difficulty breathing – should go to the Emergency Department or call 911. KRMC’s Emergency Department is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
