Urgent Care at Mile Square

Our Urgent Care Clinic is a good alternative to the emergency room. You can walk right in without an appointment.

Urgent Care at Mile Square is a walk-in clinic focused on giving non-life threatening, immediate care in a medical facility outside of a traditional emergency room.

All existing UI Health and Mile Square Health Center patients, as well as new patients, can seek services with our Urgent Care team.

Hours of Operation*:

Monday - Friday: 8 am - 7 pm
Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays: 10 am - 5:30 pm
*Hours may change due to volume.


Urgent care is a cheaper option than the emergency room. You do not have to be a previous UI Health patient to use Urgent Care. Check with your health plan to confirm coverage for urgent care services. The Urgent Care  Center is staffed by UI Health providers; giving you access to Academic Medicine in a community based setting.
