Health care for all kids at night
Is your child complaining of an earache at 3 in the afternoon and you don’t want to suffer through a sleepless night? Did the school nurse call and say she thinks your child may be coming down with that stomach flu that's going around Hillsborough County, but you can't leave work right now and your pediatrician's appointment book is already full for the day?
Pediatric Health Care Alliance is opening its evening clinics to ALL kids, whether you are a regular patient of the clinic or not. Hours are 6 to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with switchboards opening at 5:30 p.m. The two Hillsborough offices also operate weekend nights. It's not like a walk-in clinic so you do need to make an appointment. You can read more about the changes here. Locations with evening appointments include:
3638 Madaca Lane (off Bearss Avenue)
Evening switchboard: (813) 962-7330
811 S Parsons Ave.
Evening switchboard: (813) 655-4510.

5259 Village Market (at Bruce B. Downs and Wesley Chapel boulevards)
