St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children now offers a walk-in urgent care center – the first of its kind in the region to specialize in pediatrics: St. Christopher's Pediatric Urgent Care in Abington.
With walk-in access after business hours and experienced pediatric doctors always on site, St. Christopher's Pediatric Urgent Care provides convenient, high-quality, pediatric health care services for situations that require immediate medical treatment, including high fevers, spreading rashes, and broken bones.
Our urgent care center is a quality alternative to the hospital emergency room or when your pediatrician is closed. We treat patients from infancy through 18 years of age no matter how small the concern. With Board Certified Pediatricians and or Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physicians and x-ray services always on site, St. Christopher's Pediatric Urgent Care is designed to get your kids seen, get them stable and get them back home – typically with much shorter wait times and lower copays than the hospital emergency room.
St. Christopher's Pediatric Urgent Care accepts most insurances. Please call ahead if you have questions regarding what insurances are accepted.
St. Christopher's Pediatric Urgent Care is a partner to your primary care pediatrician. All diagnoses, treatment details and follow-up plans are sent directly to your child’s pediatrician the next business day so he or she can continue your child’s care.
