Urgent Care for Children celebrates grand opening of Madison location

MADISON – Urgent Care for Children (UC4C), a physician-owned pediatric urgent care provider, celebrated the grand opening of their Madison location on Tuesday. It offers acute diagnostic and treatment for non-life-threatening medical needs after-hours and on weekends, 365 days a year.

“As a pediatrician, I understand providing quality medical care for your child. As a parent, I understand the convenience that an after-hours clinic offers to busy families,” said UC4C founder and Chief Medical Officer Allury Arora, M.D. “Urgent Care for Children was founded on the principles of quality care with less waiting and we look forward to displaying that commitment to our Madison patients and their families.”

Urgent Care for Children treats pediatric patients ages 0 to 21 experiencing non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries ranging from fever and flu to allergies and acute asthma. In addition to clean and comfortable waiting rooms and patient areas, the clinic offers an on-site laboratory, x-ray service and in-house pharmacy.

Walk-ins are welcome or patients can “Save Your Spot” online.

“At Urgent Care for Children, we understand that your child’s illnesses or injuries don’t follow normal business hours. We seek to provide quality, compassionate care when you need it most: after school, after bedtime or after your pediatrician’s office is closed,” said Urgent Care for Children CEO Bannon Thorpe. “We are proud to join the medical community in Madison and create a continuum of care for children and families in the Huntsville-area.”

Urgent Care for Children Madison is open 365 days a year and sees patients from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. The clinic is located on Highway 72 nearby Balch Crossing (8490 Highway 72 West, Madison, AL 35758).

Urgent Care for Children currently operates two other clinics in the greater Birmingham area (Highway 280 and Trussville) and plans to open clinics in Vestavia and Tuscaloosa, Alabama in Fall 2019. The company is physician-owned and operated.
