What is Kid's Express?

Kids Express is a kid-friendly environment designed to provide timely, stress-free outpatient services for children up to age 18. Your pediatrician can send your child to Kids Express for fast, friendly service by pediatric experts at our Children's Hospital in Downtown Nashville.

If your child needs outpatient services, avoid the Emergency Room and ask for a referral straight to Kids Express.

We can help with:

  • IM/IV antibiotics + steroids
  • Imaging
  • Laboratory services
  • I/O urine collection
  • Simple hydrations
  • Single respiratory treatments

Partnering with Pediatricians

Kids Express is staffed by experienced pediatric nurses and respiratory therapists who are specially trained in pediatric care. We provide the exact care prescribed by your pediatrician in a comfortable, age-appropriate environment. Once the results are in, your pediatrician will decide if your child is ready to go home or if more care is needed.

We combine convenience and high quality care. If your child needs to be admitted to the hospital, you're already in The Children's Hospital at TriStar Centennial where dedicated pediatricians, pediatric critical care physicians, pediatric-trained nurses and pediatric units are equipped to take care of your child.
