UTMB Health celebrated the opening of its Pediatric Specialty Center at Bay Colony that brings together in one location the majority of off-island UTMB pediatric specialty services, as well as general academic pediatric care.

The 20,000 square-foot facility is located in League City at 2785 Gulf Freeway South, across the highway from the Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes and above the UTMB Dermatology Clinic. The location is home to cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments for patients, parents and referring physicians, with staff and faculty all specially trained and focused on children. 

Pediatric specialty services include comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for a wide array of both disease-based programs such as diabetes or asthma, as well as specialty-based programs including cardiology with echocardiography and stress testing, infectious diseases, nephrology, neurosurgery and urology, to name a few.

“We are excited and proud to bring this much-needed facility to the League City area,” said Dr. Joan Richardson, chairwoman of UTMB’s department of pediatrics. “Having all the services together in one location allows us to address the needs of children in our region in a way that blends expertise, compassion and warmth with the newest treatments and innovations available.”

These services are provided in a family-centered setting with specialized education and support services to optimize care and outcomes for the varied conditions facing children and their families.
