Urgent care

Urgent care provides treatment for minor conditions and illnesses that need immediate attention, but are not cause for an emergency room visit. Urgent care facilities are open beyond the hours of a typical medical practice, providing care during the day, weeknights and on weekends.

When to get pediatric urgent care

Knowing what level of care your child needs can help you get them the treatment they need quickly, while saving you unnecessary medical expenses.

In general, urgent care facilities are equipped to deal with the everyday illnesses and injuries your pediatrician or family doctor would treat. These same-day facilities have a team of registered nurses who can treat your child quickly and effectively if your pediatrician’s office is closed. Pediatric-ready ERs are equipped to handle more serious conditions such as broken bones or asthma attacks.

Pediatric urgent care treatments and services

CareNow locations treat conditions such as:

  • Sore throat
  • Flu symptoms
  • Allergies
  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections

Services include but are not limited to:

  • Strep, flu, urine, RSV and mono testing
  • X-rays
  • Lab services (on site and referral)

  • Fracture care and splinting
  • Laceration repair (stitches, staples and glue)
  • Sports and camp physicals
  • Breathing treatments

When to get pediatric emergency care

Urgent care facilities are not always equipped to handle more serious illnesses or injuries, so if your child needs advanced, pediatric emergency care, it may be better to visit the closest pediatric-ready ER.

When your child suffers an injury or a medical emergency, you want them to receive the best care as quickly as possible. At Medical City Healthcare, all of our hospital ERs and freestanding ERs are pediatric-ready, staffed by board-certified pediatricians and nurses to diagnose and treat children.

You should consider visiting an ER if your child experiences any of the following:

  • Head injuries
  • Serious cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Serious burns
  • Pneumonia
  • Animal bites
  • Allergic reactions
  • Swallowing foreign objects
