East Tennessee Children’s Hospital opened up a new urgent care center to help better meet the needs of our growing community.
Kids and young adults up to age 21 years of age can be treated for minor accidents or illnesses at this new urgent care clinic, located off East Emory Road in the Powell community.
The medical staff working hand-in-hand with local personal pediatricians with one big perk – later hours.
“It’s very easy to do, when your pediatrician or family office is closed, to come here,” says Dr. Matthew Blair, the medical director of Children’s Hospital Urgent Care. “Most urgent cares don’t have full-time pediatricians, and these clinics are always staffed by a pediatrician who is board certified, 100 percent of the time.”
This new location is the second urgent care center opened by East Tennessee Children’s Hospital; the other location is off Pellissippi Parkway in West Knoxville/Hardin Valley area.
Both urgent care centers are open Monday- Friday, from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and on the weekends from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.
