Sick Kids/After Hours

Memphis Children's Clinic is there for you when your child is well or ill. If you feel there is an emergency, call 911. Otherwise, call us for an appointment. We try to manage the daily schedule so you can be seen as close on time as we can manage. Walk-in patients will be triaged, and if stable, given an available appointment time. It's always advantageous for you (and other patients) to call in advance for an appointment time.

Nursing support with doctor backup is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you feel your child needs to be seen emergently after hours, we strongly recommend LeBonheur Children's Hospital (the only regional hospital dedicated to children). Alternative recommendations likely to be staffed by pediatricians include Methodist LeBonheur Germantown, Baptist Memorial Hospital (Memphis), and LeBonheur Urgent Care centers (specifically LeBonheur East, Hacks Cross, or Cordova).
