UnityPoint Health® launched a new model of walk-in care with UnityPoint Clinic® – Express at the end of 2019. The second location is set to open May 18 in Waukee, located at 950 East Hickman Road. The clinic will continue focus on a time-saving process designed to enhance the walk-in care experience. Express locations provide care for all ages and are open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 365 days of the year including holidays, no appointment needed.
"The difference with UnityPoint Clinic – Express is we provide the same high-level of quality care while offering a timesaving door-to-door service in around 30 minutes. Express clinics provide fast care, X-ray on-site, lab services and medications you can receive before you leave – all under one roof,” says Mike Namanny, Vice President of Clinic Operations, UnityPoint Clinic – Central Iowa.
On-site prescription medications will also be available to help eliminate the need for an extra visit to a pharmacy. People may also reserve their spot online at unitypoint.org/express to shorten the amount of time spent at the clinic. The experience includes personal and thoughtful amenities like complimentary ice packs, warm blankets, hot tea and complimentary WiFi internet service.
“UnityPoint Clinic – Express is a great choice for care during these unprecedented times when individuals have urgent health care needs that are non-COVID related and may not require a trip to the emergency department,” says Dr. Patricia Newland, Vice President Medical Director of UnityPoint Clinic – Central Iowa. “We ask no matter the clinic choice, that patients please call ahead before they visit a facility. We can then provide proper precautions or entry points if necessary.”
While promising shorter waits, UnityPoint Clinic – Urgent Care will still offer the high-quality care that defines UnityPoint Clinic. Urgent Care Clinics and Express Clinics can provide medical treatment for minor illness and injuries such as allergies, burns, colds, coughs, cuts, earaches, fevers, flu, fractures, infections, sore throats, sprains, urinary tract infections and yeast infections.
