Headed Your Way
We are creating a place pediatricians and caregivers can feel confident sending their children knowing they will be well cared for by experts specially trained in pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties. Children are not simply tiny adults. Their medical care, as well as the tools and equipment used, should be designed specifically to meet their needs. This is why it is important children are seen and treated by the experts trained to care for them.
Slated to open in 2018, the first Texas Children’s Urgent Care location will provide high quality, efficient and affordable pediatric-focused care after hours and on weekends in a convenient location.
Additional plans for 2018 include a Texas Children’s Specialty Care location for children. Over the next five years, we hope to open more Urgent Care locations as well as build a Texas Children’s Pediatrics network.
We invite you to stop in and learn more about the services we are bringing to Austin. Our Welcome Center is scheduled to open January 8, 2018 and is located adjacent to our first Urgent Care location at 4477 S. Lamar.
