IMPORTANT: Please read
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 primary care, urgent care or specialty clinics.
Hurst Outpatient Lab will be closed until further notice.
If you suspect your child or anyone in the household has been exposed to someone with Coronavirus (Covid-19) OR has fever and cough, please register for a Virtual Visit or call the Coronavirus Hotline for your county.
Parents and families, as we continue to follow the recommendations from the CDC, if you have an appointment at our Dodson clinic, our urgent care centers, or any of our other clinics or primary care offices, please bring and wear your own cloth face covering from home. Learn how to make your own cloth face covering or mask here. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.
Cook Children's is dedicated to your child's well-being:
To ease any concerns you might have, we're taking great precautions to create the safest environment possible for patients, families and staff. Read about the safeguards Cook Children's has in place.
We are now screening all visitors at both our multi-specialty and urgent care entrances.
Prior to entry, a Cook Children’s staff member in personal protective equipment (PPE) will screen all visitors for COVID-19 exposure and evaluate patient symptoms. If the screen is positive for risk and the patient doesn’t need immediate attention, the family will be asked to return to their vehicle and given a number to call the front desk from their car. The front-desk staff will answer the call and will offer a virtual visit or, if needed, families will be directed to a safe entrance for further evaluation.
A maximum of one primary caregiver will be allowed per patient inside Cook Children’s Urgent Care and Pediatric Specialties. Siblings and other visitors will not be allowed.
We have Virtual Visits (Telemedicine) as an option for a visit with a provider. If you would like to register for a Virtual Visit, please click here and register for MyChart, then follow the instructions to request a virtual video visit.
