University of Iowa Health Care will open a new primary care clinic Monday, April 3, at 3640 Middlebury Road, just off of Scott Boulevard on the east side of Iowa City. The new clinic will replace the UI Health Care–Southeast Iowa City primary care location at 1130 Scott Blvd.
Staff open house
UI Health Care employees are invited to tour the new facility at an internal open house from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 30. Light refreshments will be served.
Located in the Olde Towne Village—about a mile and a half north of UI Health Care–Southeast Iowa City on Scott Boulevard—the new primary care clinic is housed in a modern, state-of-the-art facility with expanded examination space and accessibility. The new location features 30 patient exam rooms (compared to 16 in the existing clinic), on-site radiology and laboratory suites, and the latest technologies and amenities to make each patient visit convenient, efficient, and comfortable.
“We will continue to provide the same great care for our patients, and we look forward to having more exam rooms, X-ray capabilities, and a larger lab,” says Katie Imborek, MD, director of off-site primary care for UI Health Care. “The on-stage and off-stage layout will improve communication between providers and nursing staff and ultimately lead to more efficient workflows.”
Upgraded conference rooms will be a benefit to both providers and the community, Imborek says.
“The conference rooms are fully integrated with the information technology needed to allow for virtual meetings, which will open up new possibilities for continuing education for all of our staff members. It also will provide opportunities for increased collaboration with other teams across UI Health Care and our community,” she says.
The new primary clinic will use the UI Health Care–Southeast Iowa City phone number: 319-467-6789. The current team of family medicine providers and a general pediatric care provider at the existing location will staff the new clinic as well.
Patients will continue to be served at UI Health Care–Southeast Iowa City through Friday, March 31.
