Birmingham-Based Pediatric Urgent Care Coming To Chattanooga

  • Thursday, October 22, 2020

Urgent Care for Children, a Birmingham-based pediatric urgent care provider, will be expanding its reach to Chattanooga in late fall by opening its eighth clinic. The River City location will sit at 5207 TN-153 Road, across from CHI Memorial Hospital. As part of its 2020 expansion plans announced in March, this addition is the company’s second clinic outside of the state of Alabama as it begins to plant a string of new locations across the southeast.

“Our team of physicians and staff are thrilled to begin providing quality care with less waiting to the city of Chattanooga," said UC4C Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allury Arora. "It has become increasingly clear to us that pediatric patients need access to specialized care, even when their primary care provider is not available, in the after-hours and on weekends.” Urgent Care for Children creates a continuum of care, supplementing the hours of local pediatric offices, and provides an affordable alternative to the emergency room.

“Chattanooga has long been on our roadmap, and we are excited to be opening our first location in the area this fall," said Urgent Care for Children Chief Executive Officer Bannon Thorpe. "The growth and reception we have seen over the last two years is a testament to the value of pediatric specialization in the urgent care space, as well as the quality and passion of our physicians and staff. The new location will offer convenient access for our patients and their families, and we are happy to have the opportunity to provide care and an industry-best patient experience when primary care is not
available."

UC4C opened its first clinic, located in Birmingham, in 2017, which was succeeded by locations across north and central Alabama in the years following. Memphis and Chattanooga will be the provider’s first clinics outside Alabama and are expected to open in late fall 2020. The company runs the nation’s first sensory-inclusive urgent care facilities and Alabama’s first physician-founded, highest patient-rated, pediatric urgent care facilities.
