As any parent knows, little surprises like injuries, asthma attacks, fevers and flu don’t take nights and weekends off. Children's Hospital Colorado is here to help. By visiting one of our several locations that provides after hours care, you can find our specialized pediatric care where and when you need it.
When do I need Urgent Care?
Urgent Care locations treat illnesses and injuries that require medical attention, but are not life threatening. These facilities should be used after normal business hours if your pediatrician's office is closed. Common conditions that can be treated at these locations include:
- Ear infections
- Sore throat
- Minor burns
- Mild asthma
- Sprained ankles
- Suspected fractures or broken bones
Why choose Children's Hospital Colorado?
All of our Urgent Care doctors have received specialized training in pediatrics. This enables them to diagnose conditions faster and treat them more quickly than a "grown up" urgent care facility. This gets your kids home and feeling better, faster.
Unlike most urgent care centers, our doctors communicate directly with your pediatrician about your child's visit. Your doctor will be informed of any test results or procedures that were performed so your child's medical record will be up to date and accurate.
