Kids Express, a department of Methodist Children's Hospital, is dedicated to providing exceptional outpatient services in a kid friendly environment for your child.
To make your visit to Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio easier, Kids Express is your one-stop-shop where your child can get lab work, X-rays or other tests done without having to go through our children’s ER.
When your pediatrician sends you and your child to Kids Express instead of the pediatric ER, it allows you and your child get the pediatric care or tests you need, faster. You can also ask your doctor to send preoperative testing or treatment orders by phone or fax to Kids Express instead of the emergency room.
Because Kids Express does not treat contagious patients, it is also a good place for children with pediatric cancers who come to the hospital for treatments. Waiting for treatment in the Kids Express waiting area instead of in the emergency room helps keeps germs away from a child who might be immuno-compromised and shouldn’t be around other children who may have infectious illnesses, like the common cold or the flu.
Kids Express services:
We do our best at Kids Express to give your child the care they need in the right environment so that you can get in and out quickly. We also want to make sure that your child does not come into contact with other children who may be infectious, especially if your child has a compromised immune system.

- Lab work
- Respiratory therapy
- IV therapy and management
- Splint application and crutch instruction
