How Long Is the Wait in the Emergency Department?
We know that it’s stressful when your child is sick or injured and you have to wait for care. We do our best to reduce wait times and to keep you informed with accurate information on how long your wait might be.
Wait times for our Emergency Departments are updated every 15 minutes and are estimates based on the average time it takes for a patient to be placed in an exam room.

About our Urgent Care Centers
At our pediatric Urgent Care Centers, no appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. Urgent Care wait times are updated every minute and are estimates based on the average time it takes for a patient to be placed in an exam room.
We’re open seven days a week, including evenings and holidays.
- Monday-Friday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Saturday and Sunday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Holidays: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Holidays include New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
We offer holiday hours at the following Urgent Care Centers:
- Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven
- Children’s at Forsyth
- Children’s at Hudson Bridge
- Children’s at Satellite Boulevard
- Children’s at Town Center
The best time to bring your child to one of our Urgent Care Centers is during the middle of the day. We are busiest in the mornings, late afternoons and evenings. When determining which center to take your child, consider both drive time and wait time. It may be better to go to a location farther away with a shorter wait time.
Hours may be affected by unanticipated circumstances. Check back for real-time updates.
If the wait time is listed as “unavailable,” the center is open, and we can accept walk-in patients. Wait times begin 30 minutes after we open and stop 15 minutes before we close.
Rest assured we’re here for you if you need us.
At Children’s, safety is our top priority. We are working hard to protect our patients, families and staff. Whether you have an appointment or need to visit us for emergency care, we’ve put extra precautions in place to keep your family safe.See How
