UI Health Care’s first Urgent Care opens July 10

University of Iowa Health Care will open its first Urgent Care facility on Tuesday, July 10. Located just off Scott Boulevard at 3640 Middlebury Road on the east side of Iowa City, Urgent Care will offer expanded acute care services and extended hours, including most holidays.

Urgent Care staff


Urgent Care will feature all of the same services available at UI QuickCare locations, plus on-site X-ray and lab services, IV fluids, and supplies for treating conditions such as broken bones, sprains, cuts, and scrapes.


Expanded hours—7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends—will give patients with non-emergent medical concerns another convenient way to get care without visiting the emergency room during evening and weekend hours or when their primary care provider isn’t immediately available. Urgent Care will also be open every holiday except Christmas and Thanksgiving, with reduced hours.

Schedule or walk-in

Urgent Care patients will be able to use UI Health Care’s convenient new online self-scheduling service to reserve a spot in line in advance, or they can walk in.

  1. Hi Jessica!
    Urgent Care will see patients of all ages, but young babies (under six months old) should go to the Emergency Room for fevers or illness.
