As every parent knows, illnesses and injuries can occur at any time.
The Northland Urgent Care Center provides care for patients who require prompt medical treatment by a physician when their primary care doctor isn't available. The Urgent Care Center is staffed by a team of pediatricians and pediatric nurses who are specifically trained to handle the urgent-care needs of children and adolescents.
The urgent care team works closely with community pediatricians and your primary care provider for your child's initial care and follow up.
