Like existing Children’s Express Care centers, the center at WHS Washington Hospital will be open from 5 to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. No appointments are necessary, and free parking is available on site. Most health insurances will be accepted, and copayments generally will be much less than for visits to emergency departments.
