After Hours Urgent Care
Life doesn't stop after 6 p.m. Neither do we. When your child has an illness or injury that's not serious enough for the emergency room, but can't wait until tomorrow, go to Children's Urgent Care. Children's Urgent Care Centers are the only pediatric urgent care centers in the area. They offer board-certified pediatricians and pediatric nurses, digital X-ray and lab services on site, treatment of cuts and lacerations, treatment of sports injuries and minor injuries and illnesses.
Children's Urgent Cares are located at West Village Pointe, 175th and Burke St.; and Val Verde, 9801 Giles Road in La Vista. Hours of operation for both Urgent Cares are 6 to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, and noon to 10 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
If you're pregnant or a new mom, there is a new free service called text4baby that can help keep you and your baby healthy.
