UnityPoint Clinic Urgent Cares

Illnesses and injuries don't always happen during regular business hours or when you have time to make an appointment. Urgent Care Clinics provide express services for walk-in care and after-hours care for non-emergency situations at times convenient for you, every day of the week. 

UnityPoint Clinic Urgent Cares offer a variety of amenities and services not always available in other care settings, such as online wait times. Upon arriving at one of the clinics, enjoy complimentary refreshments, Wi-Fi, phone charging stations, and quick, compassionate care. 

Two Convenient Locations
