Children’s Urgent Care, a youth medical center that accepts walk-ins for patients aged 0-21 years-old, opened a location in River Forest a short three months ago. This is the second location for the medical group that promises short wait times and quality medical care from its trained staff of pediatric caregivers.

As a special promotion to celebrate the first few months of operating in River Forest, Children’s Urgent Care is offering a discount for sports physicals at $15 per child or young adult right now. Parents interested in taking their children in for a physical do not need to call ahead or book an appointment for the examination.

According to a news release from the OPRF Chamber of Commerce, the Children’s Urgent Care staff work seven days a week to offer medical services for younger patients experiencing acute injuries or illnesses. The River Forest location offers onsite x-rays, lab testing, common illness treatment, flu shots, asthma-related treatment, and sports physicals.

Operating hours for Children’s Urgent Care River Forest are 3-9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The philosophy of the medical center is to be able to see young patients at times that are most convenient for parents while eliminating long wait times.

“Our pediatric urgent care facility in River Forest is the after-hours immediate care solution to the long wait times of adult urgent care and immediate care centers and crowded ERs,” according to the Children’s Urgent Care website. “With our convenient online check-in feature, walk-in option, and efficient pediatric staff, we work hard to have your kid seen as soon as possible. In fact, our average wait time is only five minutes.”

The medical center is located at 7343 Lake Street, Suite 7343, River Forest. For more information, call 708-231-8908 or visit
