Texas Children’s opens 11th urgent care location

Texas Children’s is proud to announce the opening of its 11th urgent care clinic. Located at 20031 West Lake Houston Pkwy., suite 200, in Kingwood, Texas Children’s Urgent Care Kingwood offers high-quality, efficient and affordable pediatric care at a convenient location.

Texas Children’s Urgent Care Kingwood is open 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, The clinic is staffed by board certified pediatricians who diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments, illnesses and conditions, including: asthma, strep throat, fever, minor burns, influenza, ear infections, allergic reactions and more. Procedures provided include: antibiotic injections, breathing treatments, fracture care and splinting, IV (intravenous) fluids, lab services, laceration repair and X-rays onsite.

Oftentimes, families turn to an emergency center after hours, on weekends or perhaps even during the day, when a significant event occurs with their child. Though the emergency center is the right place for some incidents or ailments, the majority of the time minor illnesses can and should be treated at a pediatric urgent care facility.

Texas Children’s Urgent Care accepts major insurance plans and has self-pay rates, which are less than emergency center charges, and there are no hospital fees. A complete list of insurance plans is available on the website. Texas Children’s Urgent Care specializes in after-hours care, but does not replace the need for children to have a general pediatrician. Routine physical exams and vaccinations are services that should be obtained from a general pediatrician, and these services are not available at Texas Children’s Urgent Care.
