Jun 28, 2017

QuickCare KidsWK Quick Care Kids, located on the campus of Willis-Knighton South & the Center for Women’s Health, has received the Certified Pediatric Urgent Care designation from the Urgent Care Association of America. This designation distinguishes WK Quick Care Kids as a true pediatric urgent care center. The clinic provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention by licensed providers who treat a large scope of medical conditions.

Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings. It is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician or that do not qualify as life-threatening conditions that require a visit to the emergency department. WK Quick Care Kids is equipped with X-ray and laboratory services in addition to having providers who are always available to perform minor procedures like suturing.

With its pediatric certification, WK Quick Care Kids and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.

WK Quick Care Kids is the only pediatric urgent care facility in the Shreveport-Bossier area. WK Quick Care Kids accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Patients may register online at wkquickcarekids.com. Pediatric patients are also treated at the WK Quick Care Bossier and Pierremont locations.
