Children's Urgent Care

Children's Urgent Care treats children with illnesses or injuries that aren't considered emergencies but require prompt attention. We are open on weekends, holidays and weekday evenings. No appointment is necessary. Our team includes pediatricians and pediatric nurses trained in urgent care.

Online Appointments for Minor Medical Needs

For minor medical needs, Children's Urgent Care offers a free, online service called InQuicker that allows parents to make an appointment online. You can check in from home, choose an available time for your child to be seen, and arrive at the hospital at the scheduled time. NOTE: If you think your child may be having a life-threatening emergency, immediately call 911 or go directly to Children's Emergency.
