PediPlace in Lewisville and Dallas provide high-quality, accessible, comprehensive, primary pediatric services to 6,000 uninsured and under-insured local children each year. By providing care for those in need, PediPlace has become a well-respected and relied upon organization in North Texas.
Albert Einstein once said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” At PediPlace, providing pediatric medical care to those without means has become much more than a quest for “A life worthwhile.” It started as a dream for Dr. Darla Kincaid and Dr. Mark Holt: two determined physicians who believed children in homes facing a financial hardship should have access to quality medical care.
In 1994 they opened their doors and instantly became a welcome addition to the community.
Pedi Place primary care pediatric services include:
- Newborn parent health and child safety education
- Parent/child health education
- Sports physicals
- Preventive care (annual well-child check-ups)
- Treatment of acute illness
- Treatment and management of chronic illness
- Referrals for specialized medical care
PediPlace was recognized in 2010 and again in 2012 as the Clinical Site of the Year by the Greater North Texas Chapter of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, as a finalist for the mission achievement award presented by the Center for Non Profit Management; and its CEO is a 2014 finalist in the CEO of year category. This summer marks their 21st year of service. Independent Bank shares their goal and urges parents of young children to schedule all the recommended vaccinations, check-ups and medical care suggested by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
When it comes to banking, PediPlace relies on Independent Bank for their business needs. As a non-profit organization, PediPlace continually fundraises and participates in community events.

The Importance of Primary Care
Whether your child is entering school for the first time or about to graduate, back-to-school season is the perfect opportunity for parents to checkup on their children’s health. They need to be protected against common childhood diseases and illnesses. It may also be a convenient time to have a general health screening or a sports-physical. These basic measures may identify a potential problem before it becomes a serious health threat.
