When injuries and illnesses happen, it’s important to know where to take your child.
When your child has a minor injury or illness and your family’s pediatrician is not available, our Urgent Care Centers are here for you, especially on evenings, weekends and holidays.
Our Emergency Departments are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when your child has a serious or life-threatening condition.
In case of an urgent concern or emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department right away.
To help you decide if your child needs urgent care or emergency services, use the chart below.

Due to high volumes, our Urgent Care Centers are allowing one visitor to avoid overcrowding in our waiting rooms.
Children are not small adults. Unlike most urgent care centers and retail clinics, our pediatric Urgent Care Centers have doctors and nurses who are specially trained to diagnose and treat your growing child or teen. Our doctors can communicate directly with your child’s doctor, informing him or her of any test results or procedures that were performed so the doctor can update your child’s medical records and provide follow-up care, if needed.
Our pediatric Urgent Care Centers offer:
- A pediatrician on staff
- Staff specially trained to diagnose and treat children from birth to 18 years old
- Walk-in hours seven days a week, including evenings and holidays
- Lab and X-ray services to quickly diagnose your child’s minor illnesses and injuries with up to 50 percent less radiation than some adult facilities
- Fracture care for growing bones, with access to pediatric orthopedic specialists
- Access to the Children’s network of doctors and pediatric specialists
- Electronic submission of prescriptions to your pharmacy
