Urgent Care, Boston Heights

Urgent Care focuses on caring for sick kids, and we do not offer COVID-19 school/sports clearance for asymptomatic patients. Our patient volumes are high, so please be patient if you come to Urgent Care and have to wait. Because of the high volumes, we cannot guarantee all walk-in patients will be seen. We encourage families to use our Quick Care Online option to connect with a pediatric provider via a compatible phone, computer or tablet.
