CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - An urgent care center for children is opening in Chesapeake this week.

The Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters’ new center will treat children on a walk-in basis for sinus and ear infections, sports injuries, minor broken bones, flu and other ailments. Children with more serious conditions will be referred to the system’s hospital in Norfolk or to Chesapeake Regional Medical Center in emergency situations.

The center’s medical director, Dr. Theresa Guins, tells The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1Avt3hP ) that the center will serve children who need medical attention but don’t need an emergency room.

The center will open Wednesday.

Guins says the hospital plans to open urgent care centers for children in Virginia Beach and Norfolk this year. Another center is planned in Virginia Beach in 2016.
