Collaboration with PM Pediatrics will further enhance the pediatric urgent care experience for the community

RALEIGH, N.C. (April 1, 2019)

WakeMed Children’s, the leading care provider for families and children in Wake County, and PM Pediatrics, the nation’s largest provider of pediatric urgent care, announce the opening of a pediatric urgent care office in Morrisville. This collaboration will bring premier pediatric urgent care to local families, featuring an exceptional child-friendly experience extending to nighttime hours so that children receive the right care in the right place at the right time.

WakeMed Children’s-PM Pediatrics Urgent Care is located on McCrimmon Parkway in Morrisville with plans for additional pediatric urgent care offices to open in northern and western Wake County. Providers with WakeMed Children’s-PM Pediatrics Urgent Care will treat children and young adults and offer the full spectrum of urgent care services.

WakeMed Children’s-PM Pediatrics Urgent Care is open 365 days a year from noon to midnight to treat non-life-threatening common conditions in newborn through college-age patients. Dedicated solely to the treatment of children and young adults, the practice is staffed by board-certified pediatric emergency physicians and pediatricians, and features onsite digital X-ray, EKG and laboratory. In addition to treating a variety of illnesses and injuries, including fever, infections, wounds requiring stitches, fracture management and respiratory care, the practice also treats dehydration, which is particularly important during cold and flu season and when treating heat-related illnesses. 

“Our focus is to make sure the pediatric services that families need most are available and easily accessible across Wake County,” said Perry Ann Reed, MBA, MS, FACHE, executive director of WakeMed Children’s. “This collaboration bridges a space that complements our comprehensive care services, including primary care and pediatric specialties alongside WakeMed’s dedicated Children’s Emergency Department, Children’s Hospital and Level IV NICU.”

"We are very pleased to join forces with WakeMed Children’s to provide unparalleled pediatric urgent care to families in Wake County,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, co-founder of PM Pediatrics. “We share the mission to provide top quality, compassionate, acute care to children.”

The new pediatric urgent care office provides an affordable, efficient and comfortable alternative to the emergency department along with services that primary care offices may not provide onsite.

WakeMed Children’s-PM Pediatrics Urgent Care joins the roster of WakeMed’s urgent care offerings, which includes Wake Orthopaedics Urgent Care – dedicated exclusively to acute orthopaedic injuries – as well as WakeMed Urgent Care locations in Cary, Raleigh and Forestville Crossing that offer a wide range of adult and pediatric services.
