The Arkansas Children's Emergency Room is a Level I trauma center and is fully staffed by pediatricians and pediatric medicine residents certified in pediatrics and pediatric emergency medicine. We are a fully-equipped facility specific to pediatrics available 24 hours a day to treat all pediatric emergencies including trauma.
Sometimes, a child is sick but not sick enough to visit the emergency department.
The Arkansas Children's After-Hours Clinic partners with community primary care clinics to offer sick visits on evenings and weekends, allowing parents and caregivers to forgo the emergency department. The clinic is open to current Arkansas Children’s primary care patients and patients from our partner clinics. Telemedicine is available for current Arkansas Children’s primary care patients.
The After-Hours Clinic is located in the Neurosciences Clinic on the second floor of Arkansas Children’s Hospital, West Entrance at 901 S. Battery Street in Little Rock.
The clinic hours are:
Appointments are preferred and can be scheduled through MyChart or by calling 501-364-1202. Walk-ins are also welcome.
Our staff wants to support pediatric care in the community. We not only want to be your hospital of choice for pediatric patients, but we want to support you when you have to care for the sick or injured child. Our outreach education program is designed to introduce all healthcare providers to pediatric emergency care from pre-hospital through care in the emergency room. We would love to schedule a time to visit your ambulance service, fire department or rural healthcare facility to discuss and offer pediatric care training. To schedule an appointment or find out more email us at email@example.com.
