Mayo Clinic Health System

The primary focus of Mayo Clinic Health System is the health and safety of patients, staff and our community. Know that we’re working diligently to ensure you receive the level of care, whether for COVID-19 or other concerns, that you’ve come to expect from Mayo Clinic Health System.

Below are some important updates we wanted to share with you:

Elective appointment deferment

While our elective appointments and surgeries are being deferred, we will still see patients who have acute care needs, such as illnesses, injuries or required monitoring. For your own health and to help slow the spread of COVID-19, it is important for you to call first before visiting a hospital or clinic.  

COVID-19 Testing

Testing is not available on a walk-in basis and patients must meet testing criteria. For our Mayo Clinic Health System patients in New Prague and the surrounding communities, call 952-758-4461 to speak to our dedicated COVID-19 Nurse Line. If it is determined that you require testing, you will be directed to one of our dedicated drive through testing sites.

Please note COVID-19 testing is not available inside Mayo Clinic Health System campuses, including the Emergency Department.

We’re here for you and your families to help keep you healthy, safe and informed.

Local Businesses

Grazing Acres

Grazing Acres is working hard to be able to share our meat with anyone who may be looking for an alternative place to “shop” right now. We work with two different butcher shops; both family-owned, one State-Inspected and the other Federally-Inspected and have standing dates to continue to bring animals in for quarters, halves and any ground or specialty cuts people may be looking for. We do ask that people contact us to set up a time to come by the farm and an idea of what they would like so we can adjust what we have on hand. They can reach out to us via our Facebook page or website.
