Pediatric urgent care
Covenant Children’s announced Lubbock's the first and only pediatric urgent care is now open.

The comprehensive clinic, on the corner of 82nd and Slide, is conveniently located for many of our families as our city continues to grow to the south and west.

Pediatricians on site can treat patients experiencing cold and flu symptoms, rashes, coughs, fevers and sprains. An x-ray machine is on site for suspected breaks.

"There is nothing worse for parent than to have a sick child and nowhere to turn," Covenant Children's CEO Dr. Amy Thompson said. "This clinic is a great time and cost saving option. It is available when your family physician is not, and when your situation isn’t serious enough for the ER. At Covenant Children’s we want to provide the most comprehensive care, and now we can do that for our youngest, most precious population at a location convenient for the southern portion of our community.”

The clinic, located at 5202 82nd street, will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and most insurance plans will be accepted.

Covenant Health has served for 100 years as the only faith-based, clinically integrated health network in the West Texas, eastern New Mexico region providing a Christian healing ministry. Covenant’s network includes seven hospitals, more than 1,000 licensed beds, more than 6,000 caregivers, nearly 100 primary care providers, and a medical staff of more than 600 physicians at its cornerstone facilities.
