Children’s Medical Center Opens Three Area Primary Care Offices

By Jessica Melton |

MyChildren’s, a network of pediatric primary care offices affiliated with Children’s Medical Center of Dallas has opened three new practices in Oak Cliff, East Plano, and Lake Highlands.

The clinics are located in neighborhoods where fewer options exist for families that depend on Medicaid and the state’s Children’s Health Insurance Program, Children’s says.

The network selected office locations based on patient demographics, access to pediatric primary care services, and the top ZIP codes where families are using the Children’s Medical Center Emergency Department for primary care. MyChildren’s locations take both Medicaid and commercially insured patients.

“Many families resort to the emergency department at Children’s for low-acuity conditions such as runny noses, ear infections, or sore throats. These conditions are really better taken care of in the pediatrician’s office,” said Ray Tsai, M.D., medical director of MyChildren’s in a statement. “By expanding our MyChildren’s locations, we will better manage these populations of patients, and we will provide the right care at the right place at the right time for thousands of kids across North Texas.”
