Urgent Care at Mile Square Health Center

UI Health Urgent Care at Mile Square is a good alternative to the emergency department. An urgent care center is a walk-in clinic focused on the delivery of medical care for minor illnesses and injuries in an ambulatory medical facility outside of a traditional hospital-based or freestanding emergency department (ED). You can walk right in without an appointment to get the care you need.

Our Urgent Care provides immediate care and treatment for common injuries and illnesses that do not require a visit to the Emergency Department. Our walk-in clinic is located at the Mile Square Health Center-Main location - no appointments necessary.


Monday - Friday:
 8 am – 8 pm
Holidays and weekends:
