what is Kids Express? 

Kids Express is an on-demand pediatric health care option for kids ages 6 weeks – 18 years.  

Open 7 days a week, specially trained pediatric nurse practitioners can see patients for common conditions when their pediatrician isn’t available.  

“We know that parents are busy and need options,” says Lisa Ziemnik, MD, division chief of Dayton Children’s Kids Express and urgent care. “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.”
