NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care, recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation, opened an after-hours pediatric urgent care clinic in Humble on Monday, Feb. 23. This is the fourth clinic in its network throughout the Houston area.
“We are excited about opening our new clinic in Humble and look forward to building relationships with parents, families and pediatricians for many years to come,” said Dr. Anastasia Gentles, co-founder and medical director at NightLight. “We pride ourselves on the relationship we have with our patients and with their primary care physicians. We work closely with them to ensure that families have a trusted place they can take their kids to when their office is closed. These relationships, history in the Houston market, and network of providers and insurers give Humble families a trusted resource for their medical care.”
The clinic is located at 20440 Highway 59, Suite 500, in the Deerbrook Marketplace at Hwy. 59 North and Townsen Boulevard next to Office Max, Marshalls and Toys R Us. A ribbon cutting ceremony with the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce is set for March 26. NightLight’s unique service delivery model underscores its partnership with local pediatricians and primary care physicians. Operating exclusively on an after-hours basis, NightLight treats children ages 0 -18 with non-emergency illnesses exclusively after hours when their primary care physician’s office is closed.
With the expansion, the company plans to add seven new staff physicians and other health care professionals to its growing after-hours pediatric urgent care practice. NightLight Human Resources Recruiter Yolanda Davis says the company is a unique health care organization that offers a number of career opportunities.
“This is the place if you are looking to deliver exceptional health care to children in the Houston market.” Open positions include physicians, nurse practitioner, medical assistant, LMRT, medical front desk, clinic operations manager and billing specialist. The company currently employs 45 and is hiring for similar positions in their three other locations in Sugar Land, CyFair and Pearland.

The 2,900 square-foot facility will have seven exam rooms all featuring kid-friendly murals designed to help kids feel at ease during their treatments. Services at the new clinic include onsite X-ray capabilities, cryo-treatment of warts, wedge removal of ingrown toenails along with foreign body removals and draining of abscesses. These services complement the range of medical illness treatments offered including flu-symptoms, colds, fevers, insect bites and rashes. Trauma care includes stitches, sprains and splints for broken bones, burns, eye injuries and animal bites. NightLight offers extended hours during the school year to accommodate increased demand during flu season.
