How long is the wait in the emergency room?

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.

Your safety is our priority

Because the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is a priority, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is:

  • Screening all patients, staff, and visitors for illness by taking temperatures, and answering symptom, prior testing and exposure-related questions. No sick visitors will be allowed in our facilities.
  • Allowing two caregivers with each patient in most hospital and ambulatory locations. Some services within our hospitals, including radiology and laboratory services, outpatient clinics for transplant, infusion, cancer and blood disorders and rehabilitation, and our Center for Advanced Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation, continue to have a limit of one caregiver.
  • Requiring everyone to wear a mask at all times during visit.
  • Practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet away from other patients and visitors.
  • Enhancing cleaning measures

How long is the wait at urgent care?

At our pediatric Urgent Care Centers, no appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. We're open seven days a week, including evenings and holidays. 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.

Holidays include: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas

Hours may be affected by unanticipated circumstances. Check back for real-time updates.

If wait time is listed as "unavailable," the center is open and we can accept walk-in patients. 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. Wait times begin 30 minutes after we open and stop 15 minutes before we close.

Can I save my spot at Urgent Care?

We know the last place you want to be with a sick child is in a waiting room. To help you and your family spend less time waiting we have online scheduling at all of our pediatric Urgent Care Center locations. This allows you to select a time that you would like to come to the Urgent Care Center. Once you arrive at the center, you will begin the check-in process. A reserved slot is not a set appointment, and you may have to wait after you come into the center.

To reserve your spot at one of our Urgent Care Centers, follow these steps:

  1. Select “Save My Spot” for one of the Urgent Care Centers
  2. Choose an available arrival time and give your information. You will receive an email and text message confirmation. 
  3. Make sure you arrive on time, or we may have to give your spot to the next family in line. A reserved slot is not a set appointment, and you may have to wait after you come to the center. Patients that arrive with a more serious condition or illness may be seen before you.

Hamilton Creek is temporarily closed 

Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has made the decision to temporarily close Children’s at Hamilton Creek. The decision on when this location will re-open will be evaluated regularly based on the current situation surrounding COVID-19.

Your safety is our priority

Because the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is a priority, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is:

  • Screening all patients and visitors for illness including a temperature check. No sick visitors will be allowed in our facilities.
  • Allowing two caregivers with each patient. No other family or visitors are allowed.
  • Requiring everyone to wear a mask at all times during visit.
  • Practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet away from other patients and visitors.
