No Appointment Necessary, Walk-ins Welcome

Appointments aren’t necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. Also, parking is free. We’re available after work or on weekends when your child or teen needs immediate care. If you need follow-up care, we’ll refer you back to your own pediatrician and provide an update on the outcome of your visit.

Fast Track to the Emergency Department

If necessary, we can immediately fast track children to the Emergency Department or arrange an appointment with a specialist at Children’s Hospital.

Many Health Insurances Accepted

With most insurances accepted, we get kids home and feeling better, fast.

So, if it’s after hours, be glad you have Children’s.
