Des Moines Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinics

It is best to contact your Primary Care Provider for your health care needs. But because we know health matters don't always occur at the most convenient times, our eight Urgent Care, Express and Walk-in Clinics, located throughout Des Moines and the surrounding Central Iowa communities, are available after hours, weekends and holidays.

UnityPoint Clinic has convenient urgent care and walk-in locations throughout the metropolitan area that accept walk-in patients for non-emergency situations every day of the week. Insurance co-payments are usually lower for Urgent Care and Express visits than for ER visits, so using a walk-in clinic can save you money in addition to being more convenient.
