Urgent Care for Children celebrates grand opening of Trussville location

Urgent Care for Children (UCC), a physician-owned pediatric urgent care provider, is pleased to announce its newest location in Trussville, Alabama, is now accepting patients. Open 365 days a year after-hours and on the weekends, UCC Trussville is the first pediatric-specific urgent care clinic to open in the city.

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Trussville on North Chalkville Road, UCC Trussville is available for patients between the ages of 0 to 21 who live in and around the city. The clinic is an option for parents and guardians when they need a reliable medical expert and their child’s main pediatrician’s office is closed.

“UCC Trussville is here to serve patients as an affordable alternative to the emergency room for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, and our physicians and staff look forward to supporting these medical needs,” said Urgent Care for Children COO Allury Arora, M.D. “We are so excited to be in this bustling community and are very thankful for the warm welcome we’ve already received from our new neighbors.”

Staffed full-time with pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners, the UCC Trussville facility features multiple exam rooms and comfortable play and seating areas, and provides a full range of health services, including X-ray and laboratory facilities. UCC Trussville treats acute illnesses and injuries such as fever, allergies, coughs, colds, acute asthma attacks, flu, sprains/strains, earaches, bruises and lacerations, sore throat, insect bites and stings, vomiting and upset stomach, minor burns, diarrhea, rashes and other non-life-threatening conditions.

“Emergency room visits for non-life-threatening conditions can be very costly – both in time and money – which is why we wanted to offer patients in Trussville somewhere to seek urgent care when they need it most,” said Urgent Care for Children CFO Srinivas Mallempati, M.D.

The clinic hours are Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. UCC accepts most health care plans. No appointments are necessary at UCC, but patients can “save their spot” online to reduce wait times.

UCC Trussville is located at 117 North Chalkville Road, Trussville, AL 35173. UCC Birmingham, a designated Certified Urgent Care by the Urgent Care Association of America, remains available to all pediatric patients, and is conveniently located off Highway 280 at 500 Cahaba Park Circle, Suite 100. UCC plans to open an additional location in the Birmingham metro area in the next few months before statewide expansion in 2019. Visit www.childrensurgent.com for more information.
