PITTSBURGH, PA - November 12, 2014 - Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC will open a new Express Care center in Natrona Heights on Monday, Nov. 17. Children's Express Care-Natrona Heights will be open after hours and on weekends and feature board-certified pediatricians who can provide treatment of minor injuries and illnesses.
Like existing Children's Express Care centers, the Natrona Heights location will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. No appointments are necessary and free parking is available on site. Most health insurances will be accepted and copayments generally will be much less than for visits to emergency departments.
Children's operates six other Express Care centers in Lawrenceville, Monroeville, South Fayette, Washington Hospital, West Mifflin, and Wexford.
"We realize when families are dealing with a sick child or a child with a minor injury, they don't necessarily need to be treated in the emergency department. They need quick, easy access to pediatricians and sometimes they need that at night or on weekends," said Raymond Pitetti, M.D., medical director of Children's Express Care. "Our Express Care centers are an ideal solution for this and we're glad to be able to offer to families in or near Natrona Heights now."
Treatment at the location will include:
X-ray services and a variety of other tests also will be offered at the locations.
If a child's injury or illness requires emergency care, Express Care patients will be transported to the Emergency Department at Children's Hospital's main campus in Lawrenceville. Express Care patients requiring follow-up care will be referred back to their own pediatrician with an update of the outcome of the visit.
