As cases of COVID-19 spike in Iowa and in Linn County, KWWL reports that Mercy Cedar Rapids ramps up its effort to make sure these patients get the right care.

In addition to MercyCare's respiratory-exclusive clinic at 3701 Katz Drive in Marion, patients needing to be seen for respiratory symptoms such as a cough, difficulty breathing, fever, and runny nose, will be directed by their primary care provider to either that Marion location or an additional clinic at MercyCare Prairie Creek at 777 76th Ave Dr. SW in Cedar Rapids.

Prairie Creek Clinic's hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Katz Dr. location is open from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

These clinics are open to patients by referral only, and will not accept walk-ins so please, contact your primary care provider first.

If you do not have one, you can locate one via Mercy’s Find-A-Doc line at (319) 369-4444 or go online to schedule an urgent care video visit on this website.
