MUSC Children's After Hours Care

Though your pediatrician may keep normal office hours, parents know that fevers, rashes, cuts, and sprains can happen at any time. As a result, many children end up in adult-oriented urgent care clinics or crowded emergency rooms.

MUSC Children’s After Hours Care program is changing what’s possible. We're working with pediatricians throughout the Lowcountry to offer your child access to high-quality pediatric care on weeknights, weekends and holidays. Our specially pediatric-trained team provides after hours care to children across the Lowcountry at child-friendly locations in Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, and Summerville.

Every child deserves the right care at the right time!
