Dayton Children’s launches Kids Express
innovative new concept for when parents needs a quick option for the "small" stuff
Dayton Children’s Hospital will open Kids Express in Springboro on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - the trial of a new concept in pediatric-focused health care. It combines the convenience of a retail clinic approach and online scheduling with the pediatric expertise of a specially trained nurse practitioner. While there are a lot of retail clinics for adults, this is the only one in Ohio with care that is just right for kids and focused on their unique needs.
“We know that parents are busy and need options,” says Deborah Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s. “We also know that when their child gets sick, many times they already have a pretty good idea what is wrong. We wanted to give them an option for care that they can trust is kid-focused but is also easy and fast.”
Kids Express is located at 662 North Main Street in Springboro, Ohio, to take care of low-acuity conditions. If their pediatrician’s office is full or closed, parents can choose Kids Express. Similar to making an appointment at a pediatrician’s office, parents should save their spot online to make sure their visit is at a convenient time for them and to reduce the amount of time spent in the waiting room. When they arrive at Kids Express, a pediatric trained nurse practitioner will assess and treat their illness or injury.

Insurance, credit cards or check paid in full (no cash accepted)
Kids Express is *not* an urgent care or an emergency department. Parents should choose those other options if their child is having trouble breathing, bleeding profusely, needs stitches or care above what a pediatrician could take care of during an office visit. Kids Express also does not keep any prescription medications on site.
