Today we are starting a new series called #THROWBACKTHURSDAY. Every Thursday we will take a trip down memory lane and visit the history of Urgent Care for Kids, healthcare, and other fun things! Hop in our time machine and let’s go!


In August 2011, Urgent Care for Kids was founded by Brian White and Kevin Pearce. They opened the first location in Keller, Texas, and Urgent Care for Kids has since expanded to 9 locations across Texas.




According to the Urgent Care Association of America, the first Urgent Care began in the late 1970’s and was created to meet the demanding needs in a community. Growth was slow from the 70’s – 80’s but continued to expand and gain respect over the next 20 years. Now there are over 7,100 Urgent Care Centers in the United States.



In 1895, the first X-Ray was invented. German Physicist Wilhelm Rontgen accidently discovered X-Rays, while studying the effects of passing an electrical current through gases at a low pressue. This discovery completely changed medicine!


Hope you have enjoyed this journey to the past! Join us next week for more of #ThrowbackThursday!
