Walk-In Wellness Testing
To help you monitor your health on a budget, Winneshiek Medical Center offers Walk-In Wellness Testing. Walk-In Wellness Testing is a service that allows people to have lab tests done without a doctor’s written order. Walk-In Wellness Testing is available to anyone, but was created to benefit patients who are un- or underinsured, have high deductibles or Health Savings Accounts, need regular lab tests for medication refills, or for people who want to monitor their own health in an easy and convenient way. For more information on Walk-In Wellness Testing, call 563-382-2911.

Making a difference for Tommy
“Seeing a child lying in a hospital bed tugs on people’s heart strings. Maybe they imagine their own child being sick, or they can just empathize with the parents,” says Tommy Hammel's mother, Kim. “At Winneshiek Medical Center, their concern was demonstrated by the professionalism and compassion they showed my son and our family.”
