Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will officially open the doors to the Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven Urgent Care Center, the nonprofit pediatric healthcare system’s first Urgent Care location within the perimeter, on April 17.
Located at the corner of Peachtree Boulevard and Clairmont Road, the new Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven provides another healthcare option for families in nearby neighborhoods. The new facility in the Parkview on Peachtree shopping center, 5080 Peachtree Blvd., Ste. 100, has 12 exam rooms and two procedure rooms that will allow Children’s to treat minor illnesses and injuries while also providing convenience for families, stated officials.
“We’re very excited to open Children’s first urgent care center inside of the perimeter,” said Patrick Frias, Children’s Chief Operating Officer. “I’m thrilled that Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven will expand access to care for these communities because every child deserves the quality and expertise provided by Children’s physicians and staff.”
When a family’s pediatrician is not available, Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven has board-certified pediatricians and a pediatric-trained staff to care for the urgent medical needs of children and teens seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends. Children’s also offers onsite laboratory and X-ray services to diagnose children and help them get the care they need as soon as possible.
Pediatric specialty services at the new facility includes care of:
- Broken bones
- Minor cuts, including cuts that may need stitches
- Sprained ankle
- Allergic reaction
- Asthma attack
- Earache or ear infection
- Sore throat
- Skin rash
- Swallowed object
For further convenience, families can save their spot in line for Children’s at Chamblee-Brookhaven before they ever leave home, the sports field or school, stated officials. Additionally, Children’s at Chamblee Primary Care Center, located off Buford Highway and Clairmont Road, will continue to provide primary care services.
Elsewhere in DeKalb County, Children’s continues to expand. In January, Children’s broke ground on the Center for Advanced Pediatrics in Brookhaven, with the vision of serving as a one-stop shop for children to visit their doctors through a coordinated approach, according to Frias.
It will be the first building of its kind in the state of Georgia and the largest facility from the ground-up for Children’s. The 260,000 square-foot facility, to be located off I-85 and North Druid Hills Road, will house pediatric clinics and specialists under one roof. According to a release, 457 physicians and employees will work in the center and will manage more than 100,000 patients in the first year alone.
