Mile Square Urgent Care
Our Urgent Care Center is a good alternative to the emergency room. You can walk right in without an appointment.
Mile Square Urgent Care 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, and you do not need a referral from your doctor. The Urgent Care Center is staffed by UI Health providers; giving you access to Academic Medicine in a community based setting.
