Children’s Hospital to Open Urgent Care at Blount Outpatient Center on October 18, 2021
East Tennessee Children’s Hospital is expanding its pediatric services into neighboring Blount County, opening Blount Outpatient Center on Monday, October 18, 2021. The center, located at 352 Fountain View Circle in Alcoa, will offer pediatric after-hours urgent care services on nights and weekends.
The urgent care center, a partnership with TeamHealth, will provide immediate medical attention to children when pediatricians’ offices are typically closed. Children, from birth to 21 years-of-age, will be treated for minor accidents or illnesses in a pediatric-centered, family-friendly environment. 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. This is Children’s Hospital’s fourth urgent care center in the region.
Urgent care hours for the Alcoa location are 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Blount County location will also serve as an outpatient subspecialty clinic for children requiring more specialized care than offered in a pediatrician’s office.

Children’s Hospital is a private, independent, not-for-profit pediatric medical center which has served the East Tennessee region for more than 80 years and is certified by the state of Tennessee as a Comprehensive Regional Pediatric Center.
