Texas Children’s Pediatrics opens clinic in northwest Fort Bend County


Texas Children’s Pediatrics celebrated the launch of its new practice in Fulshear with a Sept. 30 ribbon cutting.

The new clinic, which opened Sept. 13, is the 64th Texas Children’s Pediatrics location, with 50 such clinics in Houston, 13 in Austin, and one in College Station.

The event attracted patient families and hospital leaders, including Michelle Riley-Brown, executive vice president and president of Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus and Texas Children’s Hospital-The Woodlands; Daniel Gollins, president of Texas Children’s Pediatrics; Dr. Stan Spinner, chief medical officer of Texas Children’s Pediatrics and Texas Children’s Urgent Care; and the physician leader of Texas Children’s Pediatrics-Fulshear, Dr. Alexander Gonzalez.

Fulshear Mayor Aaron Groff also attended the ribbon cutting and, along with Texas Children’s administrators, gave brief remarks to the gathered families. He presented a proclamation from the city of Fulshear noting Sept. 30 as “Texas Children’s Pediatrics Day” on behalf of the city of Fulshear. Fulshear City Council members Sarah Johnson, Jason Knape, Debra Cates. Paula Gibson, district director for state Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, also attended the event.

CEO/President Mark A. Wallace described the journey as “amazing,” and that hospital executives made every decision knowing that Fulshear is one of the fastest- growing communities in the area.

“We knew the families in this community would need access to high-quality pediatric care, and all of us at Texas Children’s have promised to deliver just that,” Wallace said.

Texas Children’s Pediatrics-Fulshear—located at 6623 W. Cross Creek Bend Lane—provides convenient, high-quality pediatric care for all children, from birth through 18 years of age. Pediatrician Dr. Christopher Neumann joins Gonzalez in treating patients at this clinic.

Gollins said Texas Children’s Pediatrics is thrilled to extend its care to Fulshear and surrounding cities, including Sealy and Columbus. He said specialized pediatric services are in great demand. He also praised Dr. Gonzalez.

“Dr. Gonzalez has been a trusted, beloved pediatrician at Texas Children’s Pediatrics for more than a decade,” Gollins said. “His patients — both old and new — are in wonderful hands as he launches our historic 50th practice in the Greater Houston region.”

Gonzalez said it was a privilege to join the Cross Creek Ranch community.

“I look forward to establishing lasting connections with my new patients and their caregivers, as well as continuing to provide trusted care to my established patients visiting the clinic from Katy,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said he was grateful to Texas Children’s for the opportunities he’s been afforded during career with the hospital.

“I never could have accomplished all I have in my career were it not for the support and resources of the nation’s largest children’s hospital,” Gonzalez said.
