GREENWICH, CT and SAN ANTONIO, TX – Great Point Partners’ portfolio company Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care (“Little Spurs”), a leading provider of pediatric urgent care services in Texas, has acquired Garland, Texas-based All Children’s Pediatric Urgent Care (“ACUC”).

Founded in 2014, ACUC has served the pediatric population of DFW by upholding the highest standard of care and commitment to clinical excellence. This reputation led a record number of DFW families to trust ACUC to treat their children, as the clinic had over 10,000 visits in 2018. “We are excited to partner with the ACUC team and look forward to expanding throughout Dallas to increase patient access to high quality pediatric urgent care,” said Dr. Tom Spurgat, CEO and Founder of Little Spurs.
“We have worked tirelessly since opening to provide DFW children with high-quality, flexible, and caring medicine. Our team is proud to have treated thousands of children and looks forward to continuing to expand our practice,” said Dr. Sameeh Zalloum, the Physician-Founder of ACUC. Dr. Zalloum will continue to practice medicine at ACUC.
Additionally, Little Spurs is pleased to announce that Hugh Greene, Jean Rush, and Don Tomasso have joined the Board of Directors. As the former CEO of Jacksonville Baptist Health System, Hugh Greene brings a wealth of knowledge on the provider side, while Jean Rush, a former Executive Vice President at Highmark Health, brings extensive payor experience. Don Tomasso, who has extensive multi-site healthcare services experience as the former President of Manor Care and former Chairman of the Board of Professional Physical Therapy, will serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
