MedExpress opened two neighborhood medical centers in the Minneapolis area.

The centers, in Eden Prairie at 16490 W. 78th St. and Plymouth at 16895 County Road 24, are the company’s first locations in Minnesota. MedExpress plans additional centers in Mankato, Cloquet, and Brooklyn Park during the remainder of the year.

“MedExpress is committed to providing high-quality, convenient, patient-centric care to families, patients and employees in Eden Prairie and Plymouth,” said Frank Alderman, MD, CEO of MedExpress.

“From the moment a patient walks through our doors, we’re completely focused on exceeding their expectations and providing the best possible experience. We do this by putting the patient at the center of everything we do and measuring success one patient at a time.”

MedExpress centers are open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with no appointments necessary, offering a convenient option for consumers with immediate health care needs. The centers offer walk-in treatment for everyday illness and injury through its urgent care services, which include more advanced offerings such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches, and treatment for sprains and broken bones.

MedExpress also offers basic wellness services such as sports physicals, routine physicals, immunizations, and tobacco cessation counseling. In addition, MedExpress offers employer health services such as workers’ compensation, injury care, and pre-employment screenings and physicals.

MedExpress centers accept most major insurance and offer affordable pricing for those without insurance. Centers are staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, providers, and radiologic technologists.

As a neighborhood medical center and community health care partner, MedExpress can help refer patients, when necessary, within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitals.
