Randall Children’s Urgent Care Opens on the Westside; Providing Care Just for Kids on Evenings and Weekends

 

June 25, 2013 —Starting July 1, the new, Randall Children’s Urgent Care, located in Beaverton at Legacy Medical Group–Cornell, will treat kids with illnesses and injuries that need immediate attention, but are not life-threatening. The new Urgent Care is staffed by physicians and nurses who specialize in pediatrics and emergency medicine and is backed by the expertise of Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel.

 

Randall Children’s Urgent Care is unique to the area in providing expert urgent care to babies, kids and teens up to 18 years old in the evening and on weekends, times when pediatricians’ offices are usually closed. The Urgent Care is close to home for the community in the western suburbs and accepts walk-in and scheduled visits by phone or online.

 

Randall Children’s Urgent Care is located off U.S. 26 (Sunset Highway) near the Cornell exit at:

When to take a child to Randall Children’s Urgent Care:

The most common reasons a parent may take a child to Randall Children’s Urgent Care are: cough, sore throat and fever; cuts and bruises; and vomiting and diarrhea. However, Urgent Care treats kids with most illnesses and injuries that are not medical emergencies, including:

 

  • Allergies
  • Asthma attacks
  • Broken bones (bone not sticking out)
  • Colds, coughs and sore throats
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Earaches
  • Eye problems
  • Fevers in infants (older than three months of age)

For more serious injuries or illnesses, Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel and Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center have kids-only emergency rooms in Portland and Vancouver, open 24 hours a day. The Children’s Emergency Department at Randall Children’s Hospital is Oregon’s busiest with more than 21,000 visits in 2012.

We recommend parents consult with their child’s doctor if they have questions about their child’s health or if they are not sure where to take their child. If a child requires emergency medical treatment, call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room.

Urgent Care physicians may refer kids to Legacy Medical Group-Cornell. Legacy Health’s new westside clinic includes Randall Children’s Hospital subspecialties and Legacy Medical Group family medicine, orthopedics and sports medicine for all ages. 

Dr. Opher Nadler is available for interviews and is the Medical Director of the Children’s Emergency Department at Randall Children’s Hospital.
