This exciting affiliation marks the start of our new pediatric 'total' care model. The model will bring together urgent/acute care, primary care and telehealth services. This reimagined approach strives to change the delivery of pediatric care in the future. In addition to traditional pediatric urgent care services, patients will have access to an expanded pediatric continuum of care, benefiting from Mednax's established pediatric subspecialty services. Beyond pediatric services, this model will also incorporate care for high-risk newborns and include prenatal services.
Founded in 2007, NightLight provides screening, diagnosis and treatment for a variety of minor non-emergent health issues, working in partnership with community pediatricians. Comprising seven physicians, 14 advanced practice providers and 20 nurses and medical assistants, the group serves more than 90,000 patients annually at eight locations throughout Houston, including Cy-Fair, Garden Oaks, Humble, Katy, Pearland, Sugar Land, Tanglewood and Webster.
NightLight is tailored to the patients they serve. Kid-friendly murals and colorful exam rooms provide an environment that puts kids-and parents-at ease. They can also treat several conditions via telehealth with services available in English and Spanish.
NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care's mission is to be a beacon of healing that lights up lives in every community they serve, and its vision is to inspire a world where love, peace and joy are more contagious than the flu.
