Des Moines Urgent Care Guide

urgent care guide des moines

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 understand that you may feel uncomfortable taking your children to the doctor. Please be assured clinics are taking extra precautions to keep you and others safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Before going in, check the clinic’s website for special requirements for office visits. 

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!

The Iowa Clinic

urgent care des moines

The Iowa Clinic is the largest physician-owned multi-specialty group in Central Iowa with more than 250 physicians and health care providers practicing in 40+ specialties. Physicians and staff are committed to meeting and exceeding expectations while providing the highest quality of service and the Urgent Care Clinics are no different. Since accidents and illnesses aren’t scheduled and rarely come at convenient times, The Iowa Clinic Urgent Care is open 7 days a week with wait times often as little as 30 minutes. In addition, The Iowa Clinic offers the only Urgent Care in the Metro that is part of a multi-specialty clinic. If something more serious is going on, the Urgent Care providers have direct and easy access to a team of specialists – often times in the same location – with the goal to keep patients out of the ER.
