Vanderbilt Childrens After-Hours Clinics

As any parent knows, sickness and minor injuries dont care about office hours. Care is closer at hand for children who need it, when they need it, with Vanderbilt Childrens After-Hours Clinics. When your pediatrician is not available, your children can still be treated by Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital Vanderbilt pediatricians. You receive Children's Hospital quality and expertise when you need it most.

What is a pediatric after-hours clinic?

A pediatric after-hours clinic provides walk-in care to children of all ages during the hours that most pediatric offices are closed. This type of clinic provides a similar level of care that you would receive at your pediatricians office for acute illness or injury. To keep care consistent, your child's pediatrician is sent a report about the visit that same evening. Our after-hours clinics do not provide well-child checkups or emergency care. Should we find that your child needs a higher level of care, we will arrange transport to the appropriate facility.

Access to experts who specialize in children

Our clinics are staffed by board-certified Vanderbilt pediatricians with experience in urgent care. With expertise in caring for children of all ages, including infants, all of our physicians have worked in the Children's Hospital Emergency Department treating lower acuity illnesses and injuries. Our specially trained nurses are also experts at meeting the unique needs of children.

Our board-certified pediatricians manage:

  • Sore throats and ear infections
  • Rashes and skin infections
  • Gastrointestinal illnesses, such as vomiting and diarrhea with mild dehydration
  • Respiratory problems, such as coughs, asthma, and croup
  • Evaluation and splinting of injuries to arms and legs with coordination of orthopaedist appointment (next business day) if needed
  • Simple wounds
  • Foreign objects in ears and noses
  • Other illnesses and injuries

Services not offered in the After-Hours Clinics:

  • Ongoing care
  • Well-child checkups
  • Follow-up appointments
  • OB/GYN care
  • School physicals (We encourage you to visit your pediatrician or local Department of Health Clinic for these services).
  • Sports and camp physicals (We encourage you to visit your pediatrician or a Vanderbilt Health Walk-In Clinic location).
