Visiting Specialists

The Convenient Care at Redwood Area Hospital brings medical specialists right to our facility to meet our patient’s and community’s specialized health care needs. We currently partner with 15 medical providers to bring a variety care to meet patient needs.

The Convenient Care area includes three exam rooms, two treatment rooms and an office area. Convenient Care physicians can use the hospital’s lab and imaging services , and operating room .

If surgery needs to take place out of town, the patient can come back home and complete follow-up checkups here. We understand that the patient’s ultimate goal is to get back home—and being in a familiar setting often speeds recovery. Our visiting specialists can refer you to the hospital’s swing bed program, rehabilitation and therapies, home care or other hospital services, to provide a cohesive care plan with as many local resources as possible.

To schedule at an appointment, call 507-637-4631. Our physicians do not require referrals, but some insurance companies do require prior authorization. We can help you through the process when you call for an appointment.
