ACMC clinics recognized for strides in patient disability access


WILLMAR — In the waiting rooms at Affiliated Community Medical Centers, patients have their choice of chairs to sit in. Some chairs have arms, others don’t. Some chairs are elevated, making it easier to stand up.

Need to have your blood pressure taken? There’s a selection of cuffs in various sizes.

And at each of ACMC’s regional sites, at least one exam room has an exam table that can be lowered for patients with limited mobility.
