Columbia, MD, Sept. 28, 2016 – KinderMender Walk-In Pediatric Center was recently announced as the winner of the Maryland Gazette Reader’s Choice Award for Best Urgent Care.
KinderMender was highlighted, along with other Reader’s Choice winners, in a special section published Sept. 24.
Earlier this year, the pediatric urgent care center was named a Favorite Doc by Chesapeake Family Magazine for the second consecutive year, and was featured in the magazine’s July 2016 edition. Additional accolades have included consecutive Celebrating Successes honors from the Howard County Office of Children’s Services in 2014 and 2015, as well as multiple nominations for the Baltimore Business Journal’s Innovator award.
KinderMender’s first facility opened in Columbia on July 11, 2011, where it quickly established its trademark colors and open layout – accentuated by a wall-mounted, morale-boosting Choo Choo train. Rapid growth led to the opening of a Laurel location in 2013, followed by a Glen Burnie clinic in 2015. KinderMender continues to make strides, and earn smiles, thanks to its brief wait times, efficient clinicians, and a steadfast belief that quality health care is about far more than just writing a prescription.
Founded in 2011 by Dr. Keyvan Rafei, KinderMender is a full-service, walk-in pediatric urgent and primary care provider with locations in Columbia, Glen Burnie, and Laurel, Maryland. Each location accepts most insurance providers and has pediatricians, antibiotics, and vaccinations available on-site. For more information, visit www.kindermender.com.
