Urgent Care for Children to bring pediatric after-hours care to Trussville
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE –Urgent Care for Children (UCC) is pleased to announce the addition of its second clinic location in Trussville, Alabama.
Located in the heart of downtown on North Chalkville Road, UCC Trussville will be the first pediatric-specific urgent care clinic to open in the city and the second UCC location in Jefferson County. UCC founders closed on the property in May 2018 and anticipate opening in early September 2018.
“We wanted to fill a gap we recognized in one of the fastest growing cities in Jefferson County – and that was the need for after hours and weekend care solely for patients aged 0-21 years old,” said Srinivas Mallempati, M.D., UCC co-founder. “Our goal is to bring high-quality, compassionate care with less waiting to Trussville families, while serving as a medical partner to our patients’ primary pediatricians.”
The second of many planned clinics in Alabama, UCC Trussville supports UCC’s goal to expand across the state and provide after-hours urgent care that complements the care provided by local pediatricians. The new facility will feature multiple exam rooms and comfortable play and seating areas, along with a full range of pediatric health services, including X-ray and laboratory facilities.
The clinic provides an affordable alternative to the emergency room to treat non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, such as allergies, fever, cuts and stitches, dehydration, sore throat, sprain or strain, vomiting and insect bites. UCC is staffed full-time with pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners who specialize in caring for patients aged 0 – 21 years.
UCC is open late and on weekends – 365 days a year, including holidays. Parents and guardians can receive quality care with less waiting by reserving their spot online on UCC’s website.
UCC Trussville is located at 117 North Chalkville Road, Trussville, AL 35173. UCC Birmingham, a designated Certified Urgent Care by the Urgent Care Association of America, remains open to all pediatric patients until the Trussville location opens, and is conveniently located off Highway 280 at 500 Cahaba Park Circle, Suite 100.
