Currently, Cook Children’s will only perform COVID-19 testing on patients who are admitted for inpatient care. No outpatient settings will perform this testing including specialty clinics.

Appointment and visitation policy:

Time sensitive, emergent and urgent cases will still take place. Parents and guardians will be contacted if their child’s appointment/procedure needs to be rescheduled. If you feel your child’s upcoming procedure or appointment can be postponed at least six weeks, please call your physician’s office. This change is being made in accordance with recommendations by the federal government and the American College of Surgeons.

  • A maximum of one primary caregiver will be allowed per patient, per visit inside Cook Children’s pediatric specialties. Please designate the primary caregiver who will go into the room with your child upon arrival.
  • NO WALK INS. Please call for an appointment and we will help you.
  • Scheduling through myChart Patient Portal will be temporarily disabled. When telemedicine options become available those will be opened on the portal.

The Cook Children's Sports Physical Therapy program specializes in the treatment of the growing athlete. We understand that children and teenagers are not just small adults. Their bones, muscles and tendons are different, as is their response to pain and injury. For those reasons, their treatment must also be different. Our physical therapists are uniquely trained in pediatrics, offering the expertise needed to help get your child on the right path to recovery.
