Urgent Care for Kids

Our pediatric Urgent Care Centers provide fast, convenient, after-hours care for children with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that don’t need the resources of an emergency department (ED). Urgent Care Centers are staffed by board-certified pediatricians and pediatric nurses from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Onsite X-ray, COVID-19 testing, EKG and labs are also available. Learn about the difference between urgent care and ER services, when to choose each and how to find a location near you. Hours vary by location.
