After Hours Care

Child getting her throat checked by doctor

Working with pediatricians throughout the community, MUSC Children’s Health provides after hours care to children from birth to eighteen years of age in three different locations. 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 ER 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.
