Urgent Care

At Akron Children’s Urgent Care, our sole focus is kids and teens. Our urgent care pediatricians care for common illnesses and minor injuries, from strains and sprains to fevers and pains. We offer wound evaluation and stitches for simple cuts of the face, chin, arms, legs and scalp. Deep or long cuts can be assessed in urgent care, but patients may be referred to the emergency room if the wound is more complicated.
