UTMB expands pediatric specialty care hours in Galveston County

GALVESTON — The UTMB Pediatric Specialty Center at Bay Colony is now offering Saturday appointments for the convenience of parents and children. The center will be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The 20,000 square-foot facility is located in League City at 2785 Gulf Freeway South, across the highway from the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes. The UTMB Pediatric Specialty Center provides specialty care for children in asthma, allergy, rheumatology, immunology, cardiology, nephrology, hematology, oncology, diabetes, child development and behavior, neurology and genetics, among other services.

“We are excited and proud to bring this added convenience to our patients in the League City area,” said Dr. Joan Richardson, chairwoman of UTMB’s department of pediatrics.

UTMB opened the comprehensive outpatient pediatric facility in Fall 2010.

The location is home to cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments for patients, parents and referring physicians, with staff and faculty all specially trained and focused on children.

Services are provided in a family-centered setting with specialized education and support services to optimize care and outcomes for the varied conditions facing children and their families.
