A new name is urgent care – Compcare – is on the way to the Med City.

Compcare announced on social media this week it plans to open a clinic in the building left empty by the closure of MedExpress Urgent Care.

“We are opening a new urgent care and occupational medicine clinic in Northwest Rochester. This is going to be huge. It will be a walk-in clinic, no appointment needed,” wrote a Comcare representative on the Nextdoor app this week. “We are aiming to open in Rochester early May.”

Med Express abruptly closed its walk-in clinic at 5507 Chateau Road in August, less than two years after opening. The 5,000-square-foot clinic building is located in the Chateau Circle development, along 55th Street Northwest. Under Med Express, it featured nine patient rooms, a procedure suite, an X-ray room and a patient waiting room.

Compcare is a rapidly growing venture that has clinics in Owatonna and one in Faribault. It is expected to open a clinic in Rogers, Minn., in February, according to its website.

The clinic is designed so patient visits average 30 minutes from entry to exit. In addition to the full slate of common care, the new clinic will also offer FDA-approved rapid COVID tests.

Compcare’s announcement is the latest activity in the Chateau Circle development led by Rochester Realtor Dave Marris.

An almost one-acre parcel in the development recently sold for $710,000 with the plan of building Rochester’s first Popeyes fast food chicken restaurant .

A 6,658-square-foot Firestone Complete Auto Care center is also under construction at 3612 Villa Road NW near the future Compcare clinic.
