MUSC Children’s After Hours Care has opened a new location in Summerville, located at 4330 Ladson Road, near Midland Parkway.

The clinic offers a 100 percent pediatric staff to treat urgent care needs when other doctors' offices may be closed. Care for newborns through age 17 is offered without an appointment from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m., Monday-Friday and 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and holidays. The extended hours and short wait times will appeal to parents who need the benefits of a pediatric setting, without the hectic and frightening pace and atmosphere of a medical center emergency room. All equipment – including digital X-ray – is sized for children.

  • Episodic illnesses including sore throats, earaches, bronchitis, cough, colds, flu and upset stomach
  • Sprains, strains and fracture care (sports-related injuries)
  • Asthma therapies – breathing treatments
  • Point of care testing – urinalysis, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, rapid strep
  • Urinary catheterization
  • IV therapy for dehydration
  • Splinting
  • Simple laceration repair with glue and/or steri-strips
