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.
Worried about your child’s cough or fever? Has your child been around someone with COVID-19, but has no symptoms? Use our COVID-19 Pediatric Assessment Tool.
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.
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.

Due to the evolving COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has made the decision to temporarily close Children’s at Cherokee, Children’s at Hamilton Creek and Children’s at North Point Urgent Care Centers starting Monday, April 6, 2020. This decision was made to help keep our patients and their families safe and healthy. The decision on when this location will re-open will be evaluated regularly based on the current situation surrounding COVID-19.
