urgent care opens in Huber Heights
Dayton Children's offers the only urgent cares in the region with board-certified pediatricians
Dayton Children’s opens its newest urgent care location in Huber Heights, just in time for winter’s sneezes and sniffles. Located at 8501 Old Troy Pike and right off I-70, it’s a perfect location for busy families when their child has a minor illness or injury and their doctor’s office isn’t open. Dayton Children's urgent care centers are the only ones in the Dayton region that are fully staffed by board-certified pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners, specially trained on how to treat illnesses and injuries in children.
Dayton Children’s Huber Heights urgent care also offers parents the ability to book an appointment and wait at home, instead of the waiting room. Simply go to the website and click the “save your spot” button. Wait times are updated every minute and estimates are based on the average time it takes for a patient to be placed in an exam room. Parents can select a time slot beginning two hours after opening and one hour before closing. Walk-in patients are also accepted.
- Monday through Friday, 2:00 pm – 10:00 pm
- Saturday and Sunday, 9:00 am – 9:00 pm
When to visit an urgent care
Sometimes an injury or an illness isn't life threatening but needs medical attention on the same day. A child’s primary care doctor should be the first choice, but if the office is closed or booked, parents can choose Dayton Children’s urgent care.
