STURGEON BAY – Door County Medical Center (DCMC) has announced it will open a new option for non-emergency care in June, called DirectCare.

It will be located within new construction at the corner of Highway 42/57 and Duluth Avenue which will also be home to the city’s first stand-alone Starbucks.

A specific opening date has not yet been announced.

Area residents and visitors to Door County will be able to obtain face-to-face medical care and treatments for common illnesses, such as the flu, sore throat, cough, sinus issues, ear pain, urinary symptoms/UTI, bug bites, lower back pain, muscle strain, shingles, pink eye, tooth pain, sinus issues and gout.

Same-day appointments can be scheduled online, and walk-ins will be accepted.

DirectCare will also offer point-of-care testing, which are basic tests that provide rapid results.

X-rays, stitches and laboratory tests that require blood draws are not available.

Additionally, DirectCare is not available for children under 12 months of age.

Door County Medical Center continues to provide care at its Urgent Care Clinic, 323 S. 18th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, which is designed for minor injuries and illnesses that need prompt attention, but do not require the resources of the emergency department.
