Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt will open a third after-hours clinic, located in Spring Hill, Tenn., Monday, Feb. 3.

The Vanderbilt Children’s After-Hours Clinic, located at 1003 Reserve Blvd., Suite 110, will allow parents to take their children to get care when their pediatricians’ offices have closed for the day or the weekend. To keep care consistent and current, the child’s regular pediatrician will be sent a report about the visit the same evening.

The Vanderbilt Children’s After-Hours Clinic will be open seven days a week, including holidays. The hours are Monday-Friday, 6-9:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 12:30-7:30 p.m.

The clinic will be staffed with Vanderbilt board-certified pediatricians and offer acute care for minor illnesses such as fever, sore throat, asthma, splinting and repairing wounds. Services such as flu shots, other vaccines and X-rays will not be available. No appointment is necessary, but it is recommended that parents call their child’s regular primary care physician first.

During the day, the space will be utilized by Vanderbilt Children’s Specialty Clinics offering appointments for Pediatric Genetics, Pulmonary and Urology. The Spring Hill Specialty Clinic care team will include: Christian Rosas-Salazar, M.D., MPH, assistant professor of Pediatrics in Pulmonary Medicine; Apostolos Psychogios, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics in Pediatric Medical Genetics; John C. Thomas, M.D., assistant professor of Pediatrics in Pediatric Urology and  John C. Pope IV, M.D., professor of Pediatrics in Pediatric Urology.
