Pediatric Immediate Care Centers

With extended hours and walk-in service, Immediate Care offers same-day medical services for the unexpected illnesses on the 8th floor of our Lincoln Park Outpatient Center and at our Outpatient Center in Northbrook. Pediatricians provide urgent treatment for non-emergencies or non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, including:

Please note: This is not our emergency department, and therefore, we cannot provide the following services:

  • Babies under two months old with a fever 
  • IV hydration (We do have Zofran and oral hydration supplies)
  • Gynecologic exams
  • Extensive lab work-ups
  • School/sports physicals
  • Care for complex medical patients
  • Eye or dental trauma
  • Extensive burns
  • Immunizations

Rapid Flu Testing 

Both Lurie Children's Immediate Care locations offer rapid flu testing, providing families with quicker and more accurate results. Benefits of rapid flu testing include: 

  • Minimally-invasive for patients – only requires a quick cotton swab of the nose
  • Quick test results (typically around 15 minutes) 
  • Fast and accurate results which allow the physician and family to make well-informed decisions about anti-viral medications, when appropriate, and help to avoid potential medications that would not be helpful for the flu
