Our urgent care centers are just as important to parents as they are to kids. Because when kids get sick or hurt, parents need peace of mind.
Always call your child’s primary care provider first. But if your child needs urgent care, know that we’ve got you covered. With seven convenient locations, Nationwide Children’s Urgent Care Centers provide expert, pediatric care when and where you need it most. Close to your home.
When so many aspects of our daily lives are uncertain right now, it’s nice to know that care for your kids is as certain as ever.

What is Urgent Care?
Nationwide Children's Hospital offers many urgent care locations located throughout the Columbus metropolitan area: Downtown Columbus, Canal Winchester, Dublin, East Columbus, Hilliard, Westerville and Marysville.
Your first call should always be to your pediatrician or family doctor who knows your child best.
Always call 911 if you think your child is experiencing a medical emergency or life-threatening condition. If you think someone is poisoned, call the Central Ohio Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222.

Consent for Treatment
All patients who come to Nationwide Children's for medical treatment need to have a signed consent for treatment on file. If a child under 18 comes to Nationwide Children's Hospital for treatment with someone other than their parent or legal guardian, we need an authorization from the parent or legal guardian to allow them to sign medical consent for the child. The authorization form names someone over the age of 18, chosen by the parent or legal guardian, to seek medical treatment and sign consent for the child. For example, a baby-sitter, teacher or other family member. Make sure that anyone caring for your child who may need to seek medical attention for your child in your absence, has a completed authorization form.
