Estimated Urgent Care Wait Times

These are estimated wait times for each Urgent Care clinic. Wait times may vary depending on the severity of the illnesses we are treating.

Whether it’s a rash, a tummy ache or a minor accident, kids don’t always get sick during doctors’ office hours. That’s why Seattle Children’s Hospital has Urgent Care clinics in Bellevue, Federal Way, Mill Creek and Seattle. No appointment is necessary. Wait times and out-of-pocket costs for urgent care are typically less than an emergency room visit.

Remember, if your child's illness or injury is life-threatening, call 911.


You do not need an appointment or a referral.

Have Billing Questions?

Seattle Children’s bills a facility charge (PDF) for hospital-based clinic visits. Effective July 1, 2013, Seattle Children’s reduced the urgent care facility fee associated with visits to any of our four Urgent Care Clinics in Bellevue, Federal Way, Mill Creek and Seattle. By choosing urgent care, you will likely have lower out-of-pocket expense than a visit to the Emergency Department. Learn more about your bill.

We recently took my son to the Children's urgent care center at Bellevue and had such a positive experience. He had a medical issue arise the day before we were leaving for a trip and taking him to his pediatrician wasn't an option. The Urgent Care Clinic made so much more sense than a trip to the emergency room. It was much more convenient, less expensive, and there was no wait time.
