Opening will be on October 28, 2017
October 22, 2017 (Birmingham, Ala.) – Urgent Care for Children, a new state of the art pediatric urgent care clinic will open its first location in Birmingham, AL on October 28th. This is the first ‘pediatric only’ urgent care clinic in Jefferson country and the first physician group owned pediatric urgent care in the state of Alabama. The first of many planned clinics in Alabama and eventually nationwide will be located at 500 Cahaba Park Circle Suite, 100, Birmingham, AL 35242 near Grandview Medical Hospital.
A partnership, owned by physicians and entrepreneurs with over 150 years of combined experience in the healthcare industry, will be bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Birmingham pediatric community. The Urgent Care for Children’s business model is to offer quality urgent care while providing minimal wait times than would be experienced in other urgent care settings. The clinic will always be staffed with full time pediatricians and nurse practitioners seven days a week to treat patients up from 0 to age 21. The goal is to be the first choice provider for pediatric urgent care when the primary pediatrician is not available. This reduces the cost and burden of providing such health care through an emergency room visit or other forms of urgent care. In addition, Urgent care for Children employs a robust primary care pediatrician follow up model, where pediatric homes are informed about details of the children’s urgent care visit the very next day.
The brand new facility boasts multiple exam rooms, and comfortable play and seating areas. The clinic will provide a full range of health services and will have state of the art X-ray and laboratory facilities. “Less Waiting. Quality care is our motto,” stated Dr. Maria Myers, one of the Pediatricians in the group. “When your primary physician is closed for the evening, we serve the community with a more affordable care alternative compared to a costly emergency room visit. We are not here to replace your primary Pediatricians but to supplement the care kids receive in the afterhours and weekends”.
The clinic hours will be Monday through Friday from 2:00-10:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday 12:00-8:00 pm. No appointments are necessary and the clinic offers a convenient “save your spot” feature on the website to cut down on wait times.
Urgent Care for Children will accept most health care plans. The urgent care clinic’s specialized team will be available to treat acute illnesses and injuries such as fever, allergies, coughs, colds
acute asthma attack, Flu, sprains/strains, earaches, bruises and lacerations, sore throat
Insect bites/stings, vomiting and upset stomach, minor burns, diarrhea, rashes, other non-life-threatening conditions.
Urgent Care for Children will open its doors to the community on October 28, 2017. Learn more at www.childrensurgent.com or https://www.facebook.com/childrensurgent/
