If you need care, don’t delay. We’re open, safe and ready to care for you. During this time, it’s especially important to seek care for symptoms that concern you as well as manage chronic conditions.
Care is available in many ways, including video visits. You can talk with your doctor and receive the same personalized care, expert answers and a treatment plan tailored to you. We’re also offering in-person visits, phone visits and our 24/7 online clinic, virtuwell.com.
Due to a national shortage of testing supplies, in most cases a video visit must be scheduled prior to getting tested for COVID-19. If a doctor determines a COVID-19 test is needed, we’ll help you schedule it at one of our convenient drive-up testing locations.

Home care is health care you receive in your home. The purpose is to help you manage your health or recover from illness or injury when traveling to receive care is not an option.
Many people confuse home care with personal care assistance. Home care is rehabilitation and skilled nursing services that a doctor orders.
Personal care assistance typically includes help around the house and light meal prep. Sometimes people who need home care also need personal care assistance. Medicare covers home care 100%. Personal care assistance is usually paid out of pocket, and it is not offered by HealthPartners and Park Nicollet.
We often hear from family members and friends who are seeking care on behalf of someone else. If someone you care for needs home care, we’d be happy to help.
