JCMG is pleased to announce the launch of a fourth Express Care location in Jefferson City, and this time with a twist – the walk-in clinic serves only pediatric patients.

Pediatric Express Care of JCMG officially opened on July 2 and now sees patients ages 0-18 years on a walk-in basis. Located in the existing JCMG Pediatrics clinic on the second floor of the JCMG Women and Children’s Center, Pediatric Express Care operates seven days per week and will be open to the public. Patients do not have to be established with JCMG or JCMG Pediatrics. Anyone may bring their child in to be seen.

Pediatric Express Care is a collaborative extension of the Express Care of JCMG brand designed to fill a need in the community for expert pediatric care on a walk-in basis. Patients may be seen by a nurse practitioner dedicated to pediatric patients or by a pediatrician.

“JCMG Pediatrics is excited to provide a Pediatric-only Express Care for our community,” said Dr. Brian Herrbold, pediatrician with JCMG Pediatrics. “Our expanded hours and walk-in availability will provide parents with a more convenient avenue to have their child seen quickly for minor injuries and illnesses without making a costly trip to the ER. In addition, they will be seen by providers that work only with kids every day. We are proud to provide the first Express Care in the area dedicated only to children.”

All Express Care of JCMG locations including Pediatric Express Care treat a wide variety of non-emergency health concerns like sore throats, minor cuts or burns, strains or sprains, earaches, minor fevers and the flu. Anyone may visit an Express Care of JCMG; no appointment is needed. Children may be seen at Pediatric Express Care or any other Express Care location, as all Express Care providers are qualified to see children.
