Adena Pediatrics to Expand Clinic Hours: Children’s Urgent Care to Close

To serve the needs of Adena Medical Group’s (AMG) pediatric patients and their families, beginning Monday, Aug. 31, Adena Pediatrics will begin offering extended hours for all AMG-established pediatric patients. The clinic, located in Suite G10 of the Medical Office Building on Adena’s Chillicothe campus, will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to Noon, with walk-in availability after 5 p.m. and on Saturdays. As a result of these expanded service hours, the Adena Pediatric Urgent Care will permanently close on Friday, Aug. 28, 2015.

“Our patients and their families expect and deserve care from their provider when they need it, at a time that is convenient for them,” said Dr. H. Takaji Kittaka, Jr., Chief Transformation Officer/Chief Medical Officer for Ambulatory Care. “This reasoning, along with access to patient medical records, and continuity and quality of care led to the decision to expand clinic hours for Adena’s child patients.”

To ensure all of Adena’s pediatric patients have access to afterhours care when they need it, walk-in care will be available in Adena Pediatrics’ Chillicothe office for all of Adena-established pediatric patients, regardless of where they normally see their Adena provider. With the Aug. 28 closing of Adena Pediatric Urgent Care, children who are not established with an Adena-employed provider have these options for afterhours care:
