For students needing non-emergency medical attention, Kirkwood Student Health Clinic services are offered at the MercyCare Prairie Creek clinic in Cedar Rapids. The clinic is located at 777 76th Ave Dr SW, in Cedar Rapids. Kirkwood covers the cost of the initial nurse visit.
Student Health Hours:
Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Friday 8 – 11 a.m.
Call 319-558-0342 to speak with a nurse and schedule an appointment.
For those students who cannot easily visit the clinic in person, or for those that would prefer it, MercyCare has provided a video visit option.
The video visits cover a wide range of patient needs – from acute care to the management of chronic conditions to follow-up appointments. Following the visit, providers can send a prescription directly to a patient’s preferred pharmacy, if necessary. These visits are covered by most insurance carriers, and some carriers have chosen to waive cost-sharing at this time. Self-pay is also an option for this service.
