Dayton Children’s launches two more Kids Express locations
Mason and West Chester will be the next homes for an innovative new concept for when parents needs a quick option for the "small" stuff
Dayton Children’s Hospital will open two more Kids Express locations in Mason and West Chester this month. The West Chester location will open February 24 and the Mason location March 2.
Dayton Children’s first launched Kids Express, an innovative concept in pediatric-focused health care, in Springboro last January. 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, Kids Express is the only option 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 exists 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 can 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.
Kids Express sees children ages 6 weeks to 18 years old seven days a week. Parents can bring their children in for everyday issues such as:
- Seasonal allergies
- Sinus infection
- Sore/strep throats
- Earaches and ear infections
- Minor cuts and bruises (no stitches)
- Pink eye
- Rashes/poison ivy/oak
- Urinary tract infections
- Vomiting, diarrhea
- Bug bites/stings
