The Olmsted County Tuberculosis Clinic was opened in 2001 and is located in the Olmsted County Public Health Services building. It is staffed by Olmsted County public health nursing and laboratory staff and Mayo Clinic physicians specializing in tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment. All medical practitioners in Olmsted County are encouraged to refer patients with suspected active tuberculosis to the Olmsted County Tuberculosis Clinic for radiologic and laboratory testing and appropriate rule-out or directly observed therapy. Interpreter services are provided when needed.
These services are also available to residences of neighboring Southeastern Minnesota Counties who have contracted with Olmsted County to provide the service. Please consult with your local public health administrator to determine eligibility.

There is currently a nation-wide shortage of the two products used to perform Tuberculin Skin Tests. This shortage is limiting the testing that Olmsted County Public Health can provide for Tuberculosis. We are requesting that those needing testing call to speak to the clinic staff regarding testing options as testing will require an appointment.
Please call 328-7500 for appointment
To refer patients for evaluation of suspected active TB, or treatment of LTBI, or other patient referrals, contact Kevin McCoy, PHN at 507 328-7477 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
