Since babies don’t take days off, neither do we. We’re here when you need us, every day of the week.
Newborn Center hours:
Monday – Friday 8:30-5:00pm
We will be closed Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 5th-7th, for Labor Day.
To protect you and your family at this time we have the following procedures in place:
- Prescreening on phone and at check in for all patients
- Staffed are screened each day
- Completely physically separate entrances, receptions areas, hallways, exam rooms and exits for sick and well patients.
- Deep cleaning after each visit and professional sanitizing each night
- Contactless curbside checkin- when you arrive call from your car – no waiting rooms
- Everyone over age 2 wears a mask. We’ll provide one to children, adults please wear your own mask or cloth face covering to help us preserve masks.
- Limited contact and social distancing – only two adult caregivers are allowed back with each baby, no siblings.
Due to the current public health emergency, we are not able to see walk in patients. You MUST have an appointment. Please call ahead to schedule.

WHEN YOU NEED US AND THE OFFICE IS NOT OPEN:
If you have an emergency situation, call 911 and/or go directly to the emergency room. Kennesaw Pediatrics will always be available to you during an emergency.
When the office is closed, your phone call will be answered by our pediatric call center. The call center staff is specially trained to respond to pediatric health topics and follows the protocols established by Kennesaw Pediatrics. You will be given specific instructions based on your child’s symptoms and the protocols established by KP and directed appropriately. Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for regular hours.

We strongly recommend CHOA Urgent Care centers over other urgent care centers and retail clinics. CHOA centers have doctors and nurses who are specially trained to diagnose and treat your growing child or teen. After your visit, they will communicate directly with your child’s KP doctor, informing us of any test results or procedures that were performed so we can update your child’s medical records and provide follow-up care, if needed.
