NEW URGENT CARE CLINIC IN TUSCALOOSA IS SENSORY INCLUSIVE FOR CHILDREN
By WVUA 23 News Reporter Amber Boswell
The Urgent Care for Children facility hosted their 2019 ribbon cutting for their Tuscaloosa location Wednesday evening.
The children will be treated for minor illnesses and injuries in a compassionate environment.
Although this facility works to provide care for children, the onsite nurses still encourage children to have their own pediatrician for routine checkups.
“We are here to provide a continuity of care for the pediatricians not to replace the medical home concept. We want every child to have their own pediatricians, their medical home where they go for their physicals, and their immunization. We are only an after hour center for acute injuries,” Allury Arora, chief medical officer, said.
The facility is the first urgent care to be sensory inclusive for children who are sensitive to sound.
They are also open late on weekdays from 2 to 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.
The facility is located at 4700 Rice Mine Road.
