Health Care Flair--UIHC opens convenient, state-of-the-art clinic near Interstate 80

The state’s newest ambulatory care clinic is now open for business in the Iowa River Landing development in Coralville, Iowa.

The nearly $73 million facility, called University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics–Iowa River Landing, officially opened Oct. 8. Located at 105 East Ninth Street, the clinic site is close to the intersection of First Avenue and Interstate 80.

“The impact of this new facility for our patients will be enormous,” says Jean Robillard, UI vice president for medical affairs. “We will be providing our same high level of world-class health care in a brand new setting that is warm and welcoming, convenient and accessible, all delivered with excellent service.”

Services provided at the clinic range from primary care, including general pediatrics and general internal medicine, to specialties such as cardiology, dermatology, urology, and women’s health. Among the amenities are free, convenient parking; a coffee shop; and nearby retail stores, restaurants, and museums.

The clinic is projected to eventually accommodate up to 300,000 patient visits a year. Click on the thumbnails below to take a closer look at the new facility.
