UnityPoint Health to Open New Express Clinic in the Crossroad Plaza
28 Apr 2021
UnityPoint Health is launching a new urgent care model in Fort Dodge in Summer 2021. The UnityPoint Clinic Express building is currently under construction at the new Crossroad Plaza Development, 2728 2nd Avenue South.
The new clinic model has been developed to provide people of every age with a more convenient, personalized and affordable walk-in care solution. UnityPoint Health is known for its high-quality level of care, and the express clinic will maintain these standards while also providing more streamlined care for urgent needs.
The new clinic will have an X-ray on-site, lab services and prescription medication access to eliminate the need for extra visits to a pharmacy. Patients will enjoy amenities like complimentary tea, WIFI and ice packs as needed during their visit.
The Express model of care provides an attentive atmosphere with trained clinical care attendants who will greet each patient as they enter the clinic and remain with them through the visit. The same attendants will perform patient registration, vitals, symptom assessment and lab or X-ray services. The attendant will work with a physician or nurse practitioner for diagnosis and treatment.
Patients can reserve a spot online at unitypoint.org on their way to the UnityPoint Clinic Express in order to make their visit even shorter. The new UnityPoint Clinic Express will be open 8am-8pm every day, even on holidays. To learn more about exciting developments like this one in the Greater Fort Dodge area, click here.
