Texas Children’s Pediatrics Turns 25!

July 31, 2020 | (42) Comments

This weekend marks an exciting milestone for Texas Children’s—tomorrow, August 1, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Texas Children’s Pediatrics! What a special and momentous occasion for our organization!

I knew we were onto something incredible when we first came up with the idea of Texas Children’s Pediatrics, but as I reflect on the past few decades, I am more confident than ever that establishing this network of primary care pediatric practices is one of Texas Children’s greatest accomplishments. In the early and mid-1990’s, health care was changing, and as a young pediatric hospital, we knew we needed to change too in order to keep up with our growing community. Here we are—25 years later—and I’m still amazed at how far we’ve come.

Today, Texas Children’s Pediatrics is the largest pediatric primary care network in the nation with more than 250 board-certified pediatricians and 60 practice locations—four of those locations added in the first half of 2020 alone.

This network has helped us take better care of the children we serve and create long-term relationships with our patient families, while retaining many of the gifted physicians trained at Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. Most recently, the remarkable leadership of Texas Children’s Pediatrics has helped us in our venture north of Houston to the state capital of Texas. What began as a journey into various neighborhoods of Houston has led to an expedition into communities across the state of Texas. Over the years, we’ve seen how profoundly this network has impacted the children in Houston, so there was no question what we should do when it came to expanding our care into Austin.

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are currently facing, Texas Children’s Pediatrics has been quick and efficient in ensuring we provide the same quality of care, whether it be in person or through virtual visits. Each practice has worked effectively to overcome obstacles and keep physicians, employees, patients and families safe and comfortable.

As you all know, Texas Children’s was founded with the mission to care for all children, and through the Community Cares Program, we found an additional way to embrace this value. At the Community Cares Program practices, the teams assist families with added health care services such as meeting with social workers, nutrition education, assistance with insurance program applications, and more. Needless to say, Texas Children’s Pediatric practices are so much more than a doctor’s office.

As we celebrate 25 years of astounding success for Texas Children’s Pediatrics, I want to thank two of the best leaders that I have had the honor of working with—Kay Tittle, President of Texas Children’s Pediatrics, and Dr. Stanley Spinner, Vice President of Texas Children’s Pediatrics. Kay and Stan truly are two superheroes in the world of pediatrics. They have been nothing short of phenomenal, working together every day to help children and their families receive the care they need, when and where they need it. On top of caring for our patients, they have both been instrumental in our growth and are without a doubt, the reason why we’re here celebrating 25 years today.

Please join me in congratulating all of the physicians, staff and employees at Texas Children’s Pediatrics for 25 years of excellence. I hope each team member knows what a difference you make for these families—many of which would not have access to care if it wasn’t for you.

I am deeply grateful for everyone’s dedication and commitment through the years, and I am beyond proud of what we have accomplished together.

However, there’s one thing I know for sure—we are not done yet. Here’s to the next 25 years of caring for generations of families in our great state of Texas! Congratulations, Texas Children’s Pediatrics!

    Congratulations, Texas Children’s Pediatrics!

    Thank you for the vision 25 years ago, and thank you for the amazing leadership team, physicians, and staff across TCP and our TCH system for supporting TCP over the first 25 years.

    I am so proud of where we are today, and the amazing care we provide to children across Texas today, and that we will continue to provide into the future.

    A lot has been accomplished in a short 25 years, allowing TCP to provide outstanding care for our community. This is because a true partnership between physicians, APP’s, staff and leadership, it takes a team effort to grow and succeed for 25 years. Its exciting to see what comes over the next 25 years, in Houston, Austin, and wherever else Texas Children’s decides to plant its roots.

    25 years of excellence! It’s inspiring to know we not only have the biggest pediatric primary care organization, but we also have the best! Wonderful, dedicated physicians, staff and leaders who have been committed to the Texas Children’s mission from day 1!

    I am currently at the Pavilion for Women but my first job under Texas Children’s was with Texas Children’s Pediatrics. Working for an organization with Kay Tittle as the leader was a real honor. She is such a sweet, fair leader and she truly loves what she does. Whenever staff members names would get mentioned in the patient surveys she would write us a personal hand written letter thanking us for our hard work and dedication to our patients and their families. It was a small gesture but it meant alot. I agree with Mr. Wallace’s statement, “Kay and Stan truly are two superheroes in the world of pediatrics.” Happy anniversary TCP!

    Along with Kay, Dan Gollins, Sara Montenegro, and our incredibly dedicated directors and assistant directors, I feel that I have truly been part of a dream team.

  19. Vic Griffis

    I brought my son here for a very scary injury to his eye…about 35 years ago after stopping at a local hospital. After about 10 minutes with no responsiveness from the ER physicians there,
    I drove 85-90 mph to TCH… All I can say is” What a difference!” It was amazing and super attentive with a calmness and reassurance that words cannot describe. We will never forget that experience. All is well so congrats I am proud to be a small part of caring for children!

  20. Christine Fochler-Massey

My children have been a part of the TCH/TCP community, & now my grandchildren. I have seen a lot of great growth for the better in my 29 years. Cheers, & again congratulations to all my fellow co-workers for all you do on a daily basis for our little ones.

  21. Tangela James-Milstead

    CONGRATULATIONS TCP on 25 years !!!!!!! I have been apart of the organization since January 2000 making my 20yr mark of this great milestone. I love my job and the families that I have serviced here at the TCP PINEY POINT location. I am looking forward to what ever my future within TCP/TCH has in store for me going forward in the next 25 years of excellence.

  22. Angela Powell

    I remember when Dr. Doncaster said he were moving to a new clinic called TCPA over 20 years ago and hoped that we would follow as his patient. Since then all 3 of my children have received amazing care at the clinic and I have the pleasure of watching many more physicians and clinics get added into the group. Looking forward to see what is next as we expand into Austin!

  23. Clarisa

    I started off at a TCP and I met the most wonderful people there! We’ve all gone off on different journeys at different locations but I’ll never forget my original fam.. I still get to work with my main, the one that molded me, she is the reason I am where I am.. being around her is a huge plus. ❤️ I enjoy watching everyone’s growth throughout the years. I look forward to seeing all of us accomplish our goals. I consider myself blessed and I am grateful because I wouldn’t have it any other way. Starting at TCP opened up my mind to so many possibilities and helped me create my goals. So many families, parents and patients left lasting impressions on me that to this day I carry with me as a reminder of why I do what I do. I’m forever thankful with the ones that have helped pave my way even in the smallest form. I’m grateful for Kay Tittle as she demonstrated genuine care when I found myself in a tough position, she is the true definition of a great leader! TCP is blessed to have you as their president! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY #TexasChildrensPediatrics
