BlogPedsThe downtown Pediatric Clinic at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) is now open until 8 PM Monday through Thursday for walk-in and acute, same-day needs.

“We know what it’s like to send a child to school well and have them come home feeling sick,” explains Dr. Julia Joseph-DiCaprio, Chief of Pediatrics at HCMC and mother of two. “Now parents have the flexibility to bring that child to the clinic to see the caregivers they know and trust after regular clinic hours.”

The Pediatric Clinic also has plans to extend its hours to include Saturday mornings.
