IU Health opens second Urgent Care in Bloomington


IU Health

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – From earaches to fractures and allergies to stitches, the newest Bloomington IU Health Urgent Care location at 482 S. Liberty Drive aims to help patients get the non-emergent care they need, faster.


Opening Tuesday, June 4, this Westside office will offer walk-in service Monday through Friday, 8 am – 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 8 am – 6 pm. Individuals will also be able to save a spot in line through the website.


“Bloomington is a hub for healthcare in south-central Indiana, and we’re always looking at how to best serve the needs of our local communities,” said Mike Teague, MD, IU Health South Central Region Primary Care Service Line Medical Executive. “The addition of a second urgent care on Bloomington’s West side is an opportunity to better provide convenient, non-emergency care for those who develop minor medical concerns that can’t wait for a primary care appointment.”


IU Health Urgent Care locations are open weekdays, weekends and during the holidays when doctor’s offices may be closed. They’re also important for ensuring emergency department resources are reserved for those truly needing the highest-acuity level of care.


This office was designed to fit into the team-based care model IU Health is providing to the regional south-central Indiana community. This approach aims to provide care utilizing physicians, Advanced Practice Providers (nurse practitioners, physician assistants) and other healthcare experts to address the needs of patients without relying entirely on the physicians. This frees up physicians for those cases where they are truly needed, and can result in quicker care for patients.


The new Bloomington location will also house IU Health Occupational Health services, which works with companies to offer common employee-focused medical services including injury treatment, testing and screenings, immunizations and return-to-work exams.
