Pediatric urgent care provider opens doors to 20th southeast location
Hoover, Ala., (May 4, 2022) – Urgent Care for Children (UC4C), a Birmingham-based pediatric urgent care provider, is now open and serving children in the Hoover area. The newest clinic sits within The Village at Brock’s Gap at 1001 Brocks Gap Parkway. This is the company’s 11th clinic within the state of Alabama and 20th clinic overall, making UC4C the nation’s second-largest pediatric urgent care provider.
“Our mission as a physician-owned and operated pediatric urgent care has remained clear since first opening our doors: provide quality care, convenient care, and continuity of care to children in the after-hours, all 365 days of the year. Urgent Care for Children creates a continuum of care by supplementing the hours of local pediatric offices and providing an affordable alternative to the emergency room,” explained UC4C Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Allury Arora Lal. “Our team is very proud as we open our 20th location in Hoover. This allows us to better serve our community where it all began in 2017.”
The clinic is open from 2 pm until 10 pm on weekdays and 8 am until 6 pm on weekends. “Conveniently located off of I-65 and situated within a growing neighborhood and retail space, this location provides access to exceptional pediatric after-hours care for families within Hoover and those in surrounding areas such as Bessemer, Hueytown, Alabaster and McCalla. We’re proud to accept most insurances, including Medicaid, which allows UC4C to act as an affordable option for families when treatment for minor illnesses and injuries is needed,” said Urgent Care for Children Chief Financial Officer, Rosh Plugge.
The clinic features an on-site laboratory, x-ray and pharmacy. Walk-ins are welcome or patients can save their spot online. UC4C will host a ribbon cutting ceremony alongside the Hoover Chamber of Commerce, city officials and corporate leadership in the weeks to come.
