Your Family's Health and Safety Are Our Top Priority.

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.

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.

What to Bring to your Urgent Care Appointment

Please bring:

  • Identification: Driver’s license or state-issued identification for guardian or caregiver accompanying the child
  • Your insurance card
  • A list of all medications, vitamins and herbal supplements your child is currently taking
  • Your child’s current immunization record
  • Medication Tracking Form (print and bring)
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.
