In the 7 years that Urgent Care for Kids has been in business, we have been an industry leader in bringing pediatric specialized care to our patients at locations and times where few other suitable options existed. Our clinics have kept tens of thousands of children out of emergency rooms and adult clinics when they didn’t need to be there. While we have been very successful with our model, we have always been limited by the geography surrounding our clinics and have been unable to assist pediatric patients in the many parts of Texas where we don’t have a clinic.

That limitation is gone forever…

Urgent Care for Kids is proud to announce the launch of VirtualPediatrics! VirtualPediatrics is the telemedicine arm of Urgent Care for Kids through which we will now be able to treat pediatric patients all over the state for minor illnesses and conditions through two-way video conferencing via smartphone, tablet or computer.  Now a child in Odessa, TX can receive the same great care as a child who visits our clinic in McKinney, TX.  And the best part is that it’s our own providers in the clinic who are delivering the care.  Now one of our talented providers can see a patient at Allen in exam room 1, and then step into exam room 2 and treat a patient via telemedicine in Amarillo.

Not only will this service broaden the reach of our fantastic team of providers, but it will be a game-changer for kids living in areas of Texas where specialized pediatric care is hard to find as they will now be able to access our great team.

Our urgent care clinics will continue to be the heart and soul of our business and we are excited about the many expansion opportunities of adding new clinics over the coming years while telemedicine and VirtualPediatrics will allow us to stay on the cutting edge of healthcare delivery and further our goal of bringing our great pediatric care to kids all over the state.

Please join me in welcoming this new service line to Urgent Care for Kids.

  1. I am excited that a busy clinic or office can divert those patients with simple issues to a telemedicine pod or online to get care from a trusted provider.
