1/19/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- The 81st Medical Operations Squadron's pediatric clinic and the 81st Medical Group Hospital's emergency department have teamed up to provide a pediatric acute care walk-in clinic during the cold and flu season.
Services are available within the emergency department, 8-11 a.m. weekdays, in an effort to provide the best quality service and access for Keesler's military children.
Parents wanting their child seen that day for an acute illness should check in at the emergency department where patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis by a member of the pediatrics staff. The walk-in clinic is in addition to the current 100+ daily appointments available in the pediatric and adolescent clinic.
