Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has opened its newest urgent care center at the hospital’s Liberty Campus, located on Yankee Road. This represents a continued commitment from the medical center to provide care to Greater Cincinnati’s pediatric population.
Examples of conditions treated at Cincinnati Children’s Urgent Care Centers include: simple lacerations and wounds; fractures and injuries to arms, legs, fingers and toes; minor burns; ear aches; runny nose; cough; fever (in children older than 2 months); mild asthma attacks; stomach flu; diarrhea; vomiting; rashes; and strep throat.
Cincinnati Children’s Urgent Care Centers are designed to complement the services provided by primary care providers by providing similar care when doctor’s offices are usually closed. The operating hours for the Cincinnati Children’s Liberty Campus Urgent Care are Monday through Friday 6 pm - midnight and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from Noon - midnight.
The doctors and nurses who staff the urgent care centers at the Cincinnati Children’s Liberty Campus are the same experts who treat children at the medical center’s emergency department at the Burnet Campus and at the Liberty Campus.
The new Liberty Campus Urgent Care Center joins the other Cincinnati Children’s urgent care locations that are open at the Burnet, Green Township, Anderson and Mason locations.
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center ranks third in the nation among all Honor Roll hospitals in US News & World Report’s 2014 Best Children’s Hospitals. It is also ranked in the top 10 for all 10 pediatric specialties. Cincinnati Children’s, a non-profit organization, is one of the top three recipients of pediatric research grants from the National Institutes of Health, and a research and teaching affiliate of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
