What To Expect at an Urgent Care Center
Here is what you can expect before heading to our centers to be seen by our urgent care staff:
Check Wait Times
Check estimated wait times here on this page, at any time. Our centers are open when your regular pediatrician is closed. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 5pm to 11pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 11pm.
Open Late and on All Holidays
We know holidays and days off tend to be more accident-prone, so our urgent cares stay open. Our urgent cares treat sprains, strains and fractures, and if it is something more serious, we do quick transport to the Phoenix Children’s main campus; getting your son or daughter in our emergency department—before the line—for immediate expert care.
Point of Care Testing
We offer point-of-care tests including rapid strep tests, urine testing and more, with test results coming back to patient families as soon as minutes or hours in most cases.
All PCH urgent cares offer X-rays and EKGs. Additionally, our physician and nursing staff trained in pediatric medicine, able to diagnose and treat young patients – not always a capability at other quick-care or imaging centers.
We clinically diagnose and treat flu in accordance with CDC guidelines. Urgent care staff treat patients who show signs of flu, rather than relying on inaccurate rapid flu tests prior to administering treatment.
