Why We Are Different – Exclusively for Kids, Exclusively After-Hours
Urgent Care was born out of Dr. Gentles’ experience working as an emergency room doctor in Houston and seeing all the children coming into the emergency room for non-emergent issues. Her vision was to form a company that could treat kids after hours when their doctor’s offices were closed instead of them going to the emergency room. Dr. Gentles and her two partners wanted to provide those services as an expression of her faith –to be a light in dark places, letting their light shine. The name also plays on the two words night and light – in that a NightLight brings comfort to kids in their rooms at night, so bring that aspect of a night light together with the comfort and bring light to dark places – thus the combined name NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care.
Our mission is to provide quality, affordable, compassionate service for infants, children and adolescents. We exist to be the first choice provider for pediatric urgent care when the primary pediatrician is not available. We improve the quality of healthcare through our market-leading continuum of care by increasing coordination with the primary care physician by caring for their patients on an after-hours basis. This reduces the cost of providing such health care through an emergency room or other forms of urgent care.
Our clinics feature kid-friendly murals and vibrant colorful exam rooms designed specifically to help put kids at ease during their treatments. Once the child is seen, we send a summary report of the visit to the child’s pediatrician as part of the coordination of care with the primary care physician.
