Central Kentucky’s Only Pediatric Urgent Care


Kids get sick or hurt at all hours — days, nights, weekends. At Child First Urgent Care, we get that. We’re here when you need us most. Our providers are specially trained to treat children, and know to talk to kids big and small — and their parents. We are open from 12pm to 9pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 7pm Saturday and Sunday with no appointment necessary or your can click book online and reserve your appointment time!  Our last walk-in is 15 minutes before closing.

Not Your Typical Urgent Care

Children aren’t little adults. They have different bodies, different emotions, different needs. Illnesses and injuries affect kids uniquely and your child deserves healthcare providers who understand that. Everyone at Child First has the additional training required to care for infants, kids and teens up to 18 years. We even have the appropriate-sized pediatric equipment to diagnose and treat your child. All in a bright and friendly kid-centered space.

There are so many reasons to choose Child First:

Open every evening and Saturdays and Sundays.
No appointments.
X-rays and labs in our office.
Smaller copays than the ER.

Board-certified pediatricians and emergency room physicians on call at all times.

Healthcare You Can Trust

We’re three board-certified pediatric and emergency room physicians with years of experience caring for children and their families. We’re also parents, so we know firsthand that kids don’t always get sick or hurt during normal business hours. We founded Child First Urgent Care because children need urgent care that’s just for them and parents need partners who will listen and care. 


Doctor offices and ERs fill up fast, especially evenings and weekends. We’re the only pediatric urgent care in Central Kentucky and we’re open when your pediatrician isn’t.  All of our providers have specific pediatric training and we’ll do everything we can to make your child feel comfortable and safe.
