Urgent Care or Emergency Care?

Sick or Injured After Hours?

CHKD understands that kids often get sick or hurt when their doctors’ offices are closed. When illnesses and injuries are not life threatening, but you want immediate care from someone who knows how to take care of your child, turn to CHKD Urgent Care.

 

Urgent care is not intended for emergencies, but is appropriate for minor illnesses and injuries.

 

In case of an emergency, please go to CHKD's Emergency Department. And remember, if your child's illness or injury is life-threatening, call 911.
