Our services

Novant Health Pediatric After-Hours Care – Poplar Tent makes it easy for you to get the care your child needs, even when your pediatrician’s office is closed. If your child has a minor illness or injury at night or on a weekend, you can be seen by a provider you can trust that day. You can rest easier knowing your child has been cared for and doesn’t have to wait until the next morning.

  • Care for minor injuries including cuts, burns, sprains and strains
  • Simple sutures for wounds
  • Removal of sutures or stitches
  • Asthma (nebulizer) treatments

  • Removal of skin lesions including warts
  • Weight checks
  • Newborn checkups
  • Newborn belly button checks (to monitor umbilical cord detachment)
