Urgent Care

Illness and injury doesn't always happen during regular business hours, and it's not always something you can be prepared for ahead of time. That's why we will soon open our fourth Urgent Care location in the Cedar Valley. 

Coming Soon: UnityPoint Clinic Urgent Care – North Crossing

A new urgent care location will open Oct. 2 near Allen Hospital to offer enhanced efficiency and convenience compared to other health care options in the area.

A better urgent care experience

After UnityPoint Clinic introduced a new kind of urgent care to Waterloo last spring, the response has been patient satisfaction scores ranking in the 99th percentile nationally. The new design puts a strong focus on quality and a time-saving process to enhance your visit. The difference is in the hand-offs, or lack thereof, as specially trained clinical care attendants will greet each patient as he or she enters the clinic and remain with that same patient throughout the visit. This bypasses the time spent transferring information and care from one professional to another.

It's urgent care at the speed of NOW  on San Marnan Dr. and coming soon to North Crossing.

Urgent care is best used when your primary care physician is not available, but should not be used for routine medical services that can be provided by your doctor's office or for any type of follow-up care. Remember to always attempt to contact your primary care physician before accessing urgent care services.

All life-threatening illnesses should always be referred to Allen's Emergency Room immediately.
