Unfortunately, kids don’t always get sick or injured when it’s convenient, meaning sometimes you find yourself in need of care on an evening or weekend. And for busy parents juggling loads of responsibilities, sometimes it’s hard to find time to get yourself to the doctor during normal office hours.
Thankfully, the Des Moines metro area has a number of walk-in and urgent care clinics that can provide care for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries for anyone in your family. The physicians and nurses who work at urgent care facilities are able to treat a multitude of conditions, at just the time you need it.
We have teamed up with the finest providers in Des Moines to provide a complete and comprehensive list of all the urgent care locations in the metro area. Bookmark this page so you can have it the next time little Logan bumps his head or Nora comes down with a high fever.
To make this as helpful as possible for you, Des Moines Mom has organized this urgent care guide by business, complete with location info and office hours. We are proud to present this urgent care guide in collaboration with UnityPoint Health where your health matters and your family comes first. Take care mommas – we’re in this together!
