Cincinnati Children’s Harrison Location is Closing Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Cincinnati Children’s Harrison Neighborhood location is closing after April 26, 2013. However, on Monday, April 29, the new Cincinnati Children’s Green Township location will be opening.
The new, larger Green Township facility will allow the doctors and experts at Cincinnati Children’s to provide more services for families including Urgent Care, while still providing the services that people have been receiving at the Harrison location.
Services that will be provided at Green Township include: Urgent care (with evening and weekend hours), psychology, laboratory and testing, X-ray and MRI, physical and occupational therapy, sports therapy, more than 20 pediatric medical and surgical specialty clinics, audiology and speech therapy, and psychiatry.
Among the benefits of the Green Township facility for families and physicians will be to:
- Serve many families closer to where they live
- Improve access to pediatric specialty services. Since many families in the Western Cincinnati area currently come to the Cincinnati Children's Burnet Avenue campus for services such as clinics, therapies, testing and radiology services, the new facility will help to decompress operations at the main hospital, thereby decreasing wait times and improving scheduling throughout the medical center.
The doctors and staff of Cincinnati Children’s sincerely regret that the closure of the Harrison location may be an inconvenience for Tri-State families.
