After-Hours Pediatric Care

Sharp Rees-Stealy's Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine consists of a team of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and staff all ready to serve the needs of your family. Because illnesses and accidents don't always happen during business hours, we make sure we're available to assist you after-hours. Below you'll find contact information and procedures to ensure that your family is taken care of no matter what time of day.
