THE WOODLANDS, Texas — A brand new emergency room in The Woodlands is now open exclusively for kids and teenagers from newborn to twenty. Located on 1640 Lake Woodlands Drive (adjacent to Freebirds and Kinkos), Urgent Care for Kids opened its doors in The Woodlands for the first time in October 2013. Urgent Care for Kid’s significantly shorter wait times, premier quality service, and modern medical technology are what make the facility a truly cutting edge option for medical emergencies and assistance.
Walking through the doors of Urgent Care for Kids the inviting and colorful atmosphere of the waiting room are immediately welcoming. Not only are walk-ins welcome at Urgent Care for Kids, but the facility also takes sincere pride in their “unbeatable” wait times. Patients can access Urgent Care for Kid’s wait time by simply looking on the official website or by calling the desired location before arriving. Patients can also check into the facility on the official website prior to their visit.
Urgent Care for Kids is outfitted with all of the latest technology necessary for a quality emergency facility. With nine total clinical rooms, an x-ray machine and an on-site lab, Urgent Care for Kids is medically equipped to address a wide range of emergencies and illnesses. At the facility, a certified pediatrician is always on staff helping and addressing the complications of patients. Urgent Care for Kids is also open on most major holidays.
After a visit is over, Urgent Care for Kids is always timely and consistent about sending a patient’s visit report to their Primary Care Physician. Lab reports, which can sometimes take longer to analyze and test, are also systematically sent to the Primary Care Physician through a communication channel upon completion.
