October 17, 2016
DELAFIELD – Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin opened its new urgent care clinic in Delafield on Oct. 17. The clinic will be open 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Children’s urgent care at Delafield is located at 3195 Hillside Drive, the site of Children’s Delafield Clinic, which opened in December 2014. Patients and families needing to visit an urgent care site can skip the wait by visiting www.chw.org/urgentcare to make an online reservation. Walk-ins are also accepted.
Children’s urgent care sites are the area’s only walk-in clinics just for kids. Urgent care doctors can treat patients suffering from ailments such as earaches, sore throats and sinus infections on nights and weekends when regular doctors’ offices are closed. Additionally, Children’s urgent care at Delafield offers radiology services.
“The response from families to Children’s urgent care clinics at other sites has been amazing, and we are excited to be able to provide this service to families and children in Lake Country,” said Amy Romashko, MD, medical director of urgent care at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. “Many of our families have commented on the comfort they have knowing our pediatricians, physician assistants and advanced practice nurses specialize in treating kids.”
Children’s urgent care at Delafield is the hospital’s fifth urgent care clinic. The others are located in Milwaukee, Mequon, Wauwatosa and New Berlin.
