Your health matters don’t always appear under the most convenient circumstances. To help avoid waiting times for non-life threatening illnesses or injuries, UnityPoint Health - Marshalltown Medical Park offers an Urgent Care, equipped with radiology and laboratory services and cares for all patients 6 months and older. Although urgent care is not a replacement for emergency room care, they can provide walk-in patients with assistance when your primary care physician is not available--while saving you valuable time and money.

When to use Urgent Care

The team at our Urgent Care can treat illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening, but still require a health care provider’s attention. These can include:

  • Cough, cold, flu and sore throat

  • Ear ache, ear pain and ear infections

  • Eye problem

  • Upper respiratory infections

  • Skin infection, rash, skin lump, bump or growth

  • Minor cuts

  • Minor sport injury or strain

  • Muscle ache and sprain

  • Sunburn and other minor burns

  • Nausea, dizziness, vomiting

  • Neck or back pain

  • Foot problems

Urgent care is best used when your primary care physician is not available, but should not be used for routine medical services that can be provided by your doctor's office or for any type of follow-up care. Remember to always attempt to contact your primary care physician before accessing urgent care services.

If you have a life-threatening illness or symptoms, call 911 and go the UnityPoint Health - Marshalltown Emergency Department immediately. Learn more about where to get the care you need, when you need it.
