Pediatrix Primary + Urgent Care of Texas launches in Houston

Pediatrix® Primary + Urgent Care of Texas is now open in Houston. The new Channelview and Brookhollow locations mark the ninth Pediatrix urgent care location in the Houston community (formerly NightLight) and are the first with a completely reimagined patient experience.

Pediatrix has re-engineered the approach to pediatrics by bringing together urgent care, telehealth services and primary care (launching early this year) to deliver seamless pediatric care for local families. With flu, RSV and other respiratory illnesses surging, urgent care offers an alternative for local families in need of quick, specialized pediatric care when illness or injury strikes, pediatrician offices are closed and emergency rooms are experiencing long wait times and capacity issues. The national medical group has cared for children for more than 40 years, providing expertise, dependability and compassionate, high-quality care to millions of families across the country. Urgent care is a natural expansion of Pediatrix’s prenatal, neonatal and pediatric services in the Houston area, offering an enhanced care continuum for babies and children in the community.

Channelview and Brookhollow are spacious, modern and family-friendly offices, providing a home-away-from-home experience for children’s routine and unexpected health care needs. The innovative design features include open spaces that feel transparent and foster trust; an inviting color palette and décor that appeals to all ages, from toddlers to teenagers; all-sized patient and parent-friendly furniture for comfort; desks/counters that children can see over; bright exam room numbers on doors to support wayfinding; exam rooms designed to support unique needs such as autism-friendly spaces; and interactive entertainment to invite and distract, including the all-new Pediatrix pals.

An experienced clinical staff comprising urgent care physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses and medical assistants offer high-quality, affordable care, including:

  • Advanced technology to support parents and providers, including online scheduling with flexibility to see all availability at all locations and schedule multiple children at once as well as a patient portal
  • Conveniently open 364 days a year with extended evening, weekend and holiday hours
  • On-site X-rays and some labs
  • Coordinated care with access to a wide network of Pediatrix subspecialists and hospital partners

Additional locations in Jersey Village, Humble and Webster will open this spring and summer.
