Sponsors Prescription Drug Take-back Day

HOUSTON, TX – NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care, recognized again in 2015 by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation, today announced it will open an after-hours pediatric urgent care clinic in Webster.

To help celebrate its clinic opening, NightLight is a sponsor of the Bay Area Council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prescription Drug Take Back Day on September 26.

“Adding the Webster clinic gives NightLight a footprint that covers each quadrant of the Houston metro area giving parents and their family easy access to after-hours pediatric urgent care in or near where they live,” says Zawadi Bryant, chief operating officer and co-founder of NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care. “Webster and the surrounding communities of Clear Lake, League City, Pasadena, and others now have access to affordable and compassionate pediatric urgent care when their primary physician’s offices are closed.”

NightLight is hiring additional pediatricians to support the company’s growth. NightLight also opened clinics in Pearland and Humble within the last 18 months. The company currently employs approximately 50 people and is actively hiring pediatricians and other positions in their five locations.
