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.
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
Upper respiratory infections
Skin infection, rash, skin lump, bump or growth
Minor sport injury or strain
Muscle ache and sprain
Sunburn and other minor burns
Nausea, dizziness, vomiting
Neck or back pain
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.
