Cover Your Cough

Cases of influenza and other viral maladies are being reported. Still the best defense is to wash your hands regularly when handling items that may have been touched by others. Use hand gels or anti-bacterial wipes. If you are ill COVER YOUR COUGH with a face mask or sneeze or cough into a hanky or a tissue. If the sneeze or cough comes on faster than you can respond, cough or sneeze to the inside of your elbow. If you are ill and running a temperature stay home, isolate your contact with others, and see your primary care provider as needed.

Self Check-in is Here

kiosk2 Patients can now check-in for their Kearney Clinic visit very quickly using the self Check-in Kiosks. Walk-in patients who don’t have an appointment or a same day appointment will have to check in the traditional way by going to the check in desks.

The first time you self checkin takes about 4 minutes to answer all of the questions. After that check-in time is roughly 30 seconds. You must have a valid government ID (Drivers License) and a current Insurance Card to complete the check-in process. We will have trained staff available to help you with the process if needed. You will need to make your co-pay at the kiosk if your insurance provider requires one.

Scammer calls saying they are from the Kearney Clinic

We have gotten patient concerns that they are receiving calls from “Kearney Clinic” requesting private and credit card information. This is called a “Phishing” scam and is not from the Kearney Clinic. Never give out any of your private information over the telephone to an unknown person, no matter how convincing they may be. If you get a call and they say they are calling from the Kearney Clinic, get the employees name, and call the Kearney Clinic at our main number, not a number the caller gives you, and ask for the employee. Scammers usually will simply hang up if you ask for their name. Any valid Kearney Clinic employee will not be resistant to you calling the clinic directly and asking to be transferred to them. CALL 308-865-2141 the Kearney Clinic main number.

Our building renovation is under way

The Clinic is under-going a major renovation. Patients will notice part of the building will not be available during this year long process. The re-model will occur in three phases, with each phase having multiple parts. What is most noticeable now is the south waiting room is blocked off. This is being renovated into administration offices and a conference room. This is phase ONE. Phase TWO will involve renovating the north waiting room after Phase ONE is completed. Phase THREE will be the most obstructive as it will involve the total renovation of the middle of the clinic, including the main lobby, entrance, access to Valley Pharmacy and creating a new patient flow and new look. We are trying to have as little impact on patient flow as we can, however, there will be limited access during short periods of time. Bear with us.
We are all excited to get this project started and we are already seeing it evolve and take shape.

Sports Physicals

A reminder that the county wide sports physicals are no longer available to groups of students, each student athlete is responsible for contacting their personal physician
