Weekend and Evenings

For non-emergent care on the weekends, Meriter offers an After-Hours Weekend Walk-In Clinic for all ages to treat minor illnesses and ailments that can't wait until Monday, all for the same copay as a regular office visit.

Our Emergency Department is available 24/7 and is staffed by a team of physicians who are board certified in Emergency Medicine. We pride ourselves on easy access to treatment, which is why you can find estimated wait times for our ER right on the homepage of unitypoint.org.
