When your child is ill, call and our reception staff can help you schedule an appointment. Additionally, a triage nurse will usually be available to help decide the best plan of action in regards to watchful waiting, treatment ideas or more emergent evaluation. We are usually able to get your child in to be seen on the same day that you call.
After Hours Coverage
After five pm, we utilize the Pediatric After Hours Triage program through Sacred Heart Children's Hospital, which staffs skilled pediatric nurses to take parent’s calls during all hours that we are not open. There is always a pediatrician from our call group available to the nurses to help with any issues you may face regarding your child.
In addition, on evenings and weekends we utilize the Peds Zone at Sacred Heart, which is a Pediatric Emergency Department. We also staff a Saturday clinic at Holy Family Hospital with our call colleagues during the school year. There is always a Pediatrician on call from our call group on weekends and evenings. Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered.
