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.

Patient Referrals for Emergency or Specialty Care
If a child’s injury or illness requires emergency or specialty care, Children's Express Care patients may be referred to the Emergency Department for check in, or to a Children’s pediatric specialist. If Express Care patients require follow-up care, they will be referred back to their own pediatricians along with an update of the outcome of the visit.

Many Health Insurances Accepted
With most insurances accepted, including Highmark, we get kids home and feeling better, fast.

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