Urgent care is intended for medical conditions that are not considered emergencies, but still require care within 24 hours or less. For non-life-threatening conditions, urgent care is often a more affordable and convenient option than visiting the emergency room.

If your child is experiencing an illness or injury that is causing discomfort or concern, visit your local Urgent Care for Children for a prompt diagnosis and treatment to help your child feel better in no time.

In the event of a medical emergency, Urgent Care for Children recommends calling 911 or visiting your local emergency room. We are not able to treat acute traumas, medical emergencies or life-threating illnesses.
