Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Opens Pediatric Urgent Care Center in Glen Mills, PA

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) opened an after-hours urgent care center in Glen Mills, PA, dedicated exclusively to children. CHOP also operates pediatric urgent care centers in King of Prussia, PA and Chalfont, PA. Staffed by CHOP pediatricians, and nurses specialized in pediatric care, the Urgent Care Center in Glen Mills provides after-hours care for children with mild to moderate, non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that do not require the resources of an emergency room. Located within the existing CHOP Specialty Care Center at 819 Baltimore Pike, Glen Mills, PA 19342, the Urgent Care Center is open when parents and children need quick access to care evenings, weekends and holidays. Hours of operation are weekdays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sundays from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and holidays. CHOP experts will treat children with non-life-threatening, non-emergent illnesses such as ear aches, rashes, headaches, minor burns, wounds requiring stitches, mild to moderate asthma, and broken bones without obvious deformities or sprains. On-site X-ray and lab facilities enable timely diagnostic testing and treatment. In order to make care as seamless as possible, a child's pediatrician will receive a prompt report of each visit with a detailed summary of care provided, a list of any medications prescribed or administered, and a treatment plan.
