East Tennessee Children's Hospital opens new center in Sevier County

The urgent care center will provide immediate medical attention to children when most pediatricians’ offices are typically closed.

Families in Sevier County won't need to travel too far for services from the East Tennessee Children's Hospital.

The hospital opened a new Sevierville Urgent Care on Feb. 1. It will offer pediatric rehabilitation services during the day and will offer urgent care services on nights and weekends. It is located near downtown, at 502 Winfield Dunn Parkway.

The urgent care center will provide immediate medical attention to children when most pediatricians’ offices are typically closed. They can treat children, from birth to 21 years-of-age, for minor accidents or illnesses in a pediatric-centered, family-friendly environment. 

The Sevier County location will also serve as an outpatient rehabilitation clinic for children requiring physical, occupational and speech therapies, as referred by the patient’s primary care physician.

The clinical team will work together with the child’s primary doctor, providing a treatment summary to the patient’s pediatrician within 24 hours of their visit to the urgent care center.

The center will be open from 4 p.m. - 11 p.m. during the week and 1 - 11 p.m. on weekends.

ETCH also has locations near Farragut and at Emory Center.
