Great River Health Systems has announced plans to build a new urgent care clinic in Keokuk. The West Burlington-based health care provider said the new nearly $7 million facility will help it address a growing number of patients.

Keokuk Health Systems appears to be on track to become an affiliate of UnityPoint Health. The two sides signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding that will allow for continued negotiations.
