After Hours Care

Child getting her throat checked by doctor

 

Working with pediatricians throughout the community in three different locations, MUSC Children’s Health provides after hours care to children from birth to seventeen years of age. Staffed by board-certified pediatricians, nurses and technicians, we provide care in a family-centered atmosphere that uses the most current, evidence-based practices to diagnose and treat your child. 

We are open on weeknights, weekends and holidays. When faced with the choice of an expensive ED visit or a trip to an adult facility or urgent care center, MUSC Children’s Health should be your preferred choice for after-hours care.

Once your child has been treated and discharged, you return to your child’s primary care doctor for follow-up. This ensures continuity of care and communication between the primary care doctor and the after-hours physician.

For patients age 18 and older needing care, please visit the MUSC Health Emergency Department or see if one of these alternative locations is appropriate for your situation.
