KinderMender opens pediatric center in Laurel

March 14, 2013

KinderMender Walk-In Pediatric Center is celebrating the grand opening of its newest location, Saturday, March 16, at 805 Washington Blvd., in Laurel. The festivities will feature food, drinks, balloon animals, a clown, tour of the new facility and door prizes attendees can win every half hour.

The new center houses six urgent care/sick care rooms, a medication dispensary, a state of the art X-ray machine on site and three segregated rooms for well children, which help prevent the spread of infection. Like the current Columbia location, the Laurel clinic will also provide walk-in services for all sick visits, check-up services and vaccinations.

Like the current Columbia facility, the Laurel pediatric center is a comfortable and friendly setting with large, boldly-colored, child-friendly decorations, an open layout so children and parents can see throughout the facility (exam rooms are private and closed off), a play room, a wall-mounted train to capture the attention of the young patients and distract them from their discomfort, and bilingual staff members who speak fluent English and Spanish.
