Publish Date: 1/18/2018

sick childIt never seems to fail – your child is sick, the pediatrician’s office is closed and you don’t think you can wait until morning – you want a medical professional to see your child as soon as possible.

Parents now have another option for obtaining care for their children and adolescents when their pediatricians’ offices are closed. St. Louis Children’s Hospital After Hours, now open in South County, offers care for non-emergencies in an easy-to-access location.

“Families now have access to high-quality, kid-focused care in a convenient setting, when their doctor’s office is closed, from a team trained in treating children and adolescents,” says Cheryl Grave, RN, CNP, manager of the After Hours program. “A real advantage for families is that our center offers less-expensive co-pays than urgent care centers, retail clinics or emergency room visits. Billing will be the same as if they are visiting a primary care provider.”

“Our process ensures families’ primary care physicians receive follow-up on the care we provide to patients," Grave says. “And, if needed, we always will be available to help schedule appointments at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.”

After Hours provides care for:

  • asthma, allergies and sinus issues
  • back and abdominal pain
  • coughs and colds
  • earaches and ear infections
  • eye irritation, pink eye and other eye problems
  • flu
  • insect bites
  • minor burns, scrapes, cuts, bruises
  • mononucleosis
  • painful urination and urinary tract infections
  • rashes and skin problems
  • sore throats and strep throat
  • sprains, strains and fractures
  • vomiting and diarrhea
