  • WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Mercy Medical Center in the booming North Dakota oil patch city of Williston has closed its walk-in clinic, in part because of a lack of staffing.
    Vice president Trina Bressler tells The Forum newspaper that the Express Care Clinic also closed because it wasn't able to accommodate after-hours patients due to the heavy volume of afternoon patients filling up all the evening appointment slots.
    About 90 patients a week were using the clinic. Bressler says the medical center is developing a new model for its emergency department to help serve those patients.
