Per signage placed recently on the building, an urgent care facility is coming soon to the space formerly occupied by Payless Shoe Source at 907 N. Illinois Route 3 in Waterloo.
Waterloo Mayor Tom Smith confirmed the news earlier this week.
“This will be great for Waterloo,” he said.
A representative of Doctors Urgent Care Group said they plan to open Waterloo and Alton locations sometime during the flu season.
The future Waterloo Urgent Care clinic will offer walk-ins with no appointment needed, Doctors Urgent Care Group Assistant Director Lindsay Egan said. All insurances will be accepted, Egan added, with both adult and pediatric care provided seven days a week.
The clinic will offer services for illnesses and injuries, laceration repairs, bone fracture treatment splinting, work-related injuries and school and sports physicals, Egan said. The clinic will also offer tests for the flu, COVID-19, strep, mono, drugs, pregnancy, HIV and STDs.
