When it comes to your children, it’s important to find health care providers who care about their health and well-being as much as you do. You hope to find a facility that is nurturing, caring, professional and accommodating to your busy and unpredictable lifestyle and needs. At Children’s Healthcare in Newburyport and Haverhill, Massachusetts, we are committed to providing your family the quality care they deserve. Here are some reasons why Children’s Healthcare is beneficial for your children’s healthcare needs.
24/7 Access to Care
At Children’s Healthcare, we know there is never a “convenient” time for a child to be sick. That’s why we offer extended hours, from 8am to 8pm, as well as weekend hours. Plus, we know that many of the medical questions you have come after office hours; that’s why we have a triage nurse and physician on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing advice for most minor illnesses and guidance on whether your child should be seen in our office or by an emergency care professional right away.
Our on-call triage nurses at Children’s Healthcare are highly skilled at answering questions that parents may have about their children’s health. If a parent has a more complex problem or would like to speak directly to a doctor or nurse practitioner, the triage nurse can take a message and your call will be returned in a timely fashion.
Walk-In Sick Care, After-Hours & Urgent Care
Children’s Healthcare location on the Lower Level of the Newburyport office offers appointments for sick children in the evenings, on the weekends, and even during holidays. If your child has a new or sudden illness, you can walk in with them – no appointment necessary. Alternatively, when our office is closed, a Children’s Healthcare medical provider is always on call to respond to your urgent questions. If you need to speak to our on-call provider, call (978) 465-7121.
