Northwest Arkansas Pediatric Clinic is now Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics. We have a new logo and a new sense of excitement, along with the same dedication to our patients and to quality care.
Established in 1983 by Drs. Joe T. Robinson and Terry Payton, Northwest Arkansas Pediatric Clinic has been a leader in pediatric care in the community and Arkansas for over 35 years. The pediatric practice has continued to attract top graduates and chief fellows from the University of Arkansas School of Medicine and Arkansas Children’s Hospital as well as other top programs.Today the practice is the largest pediatric practice in Arkansas.
In 1996, Northwest Pediatric Clinic opened the first free-standing wellness clinic in Arkansas. Finally, parents could bring their well children in for checkups and preventive care visits without worrying about bringing them into contact with sick children. Then in 2010, the pediatric practice expanded into Benton County with a clinic in Lowell.
That same year, the clinic participated in Reach Out and Read, a community literacy program. The clinic has been chosen as the Best Pediatric Clinic in Northwest Arkansas in Citiscapes readers’ surveys, Mom’s Choice Award by NWAMotherload, individual pediatricians have made the Best Doctors in America (TM) lists, and nurses have been recognized statewide for excellent care.
Now, with years of service to the families of Northwest Arkansas to look back on, Northwest Arkansas Pedriatics is entering a new chapter in our history.
“We are excited to launch our bright new logo and feel it represents our modern, advanced pediatric practice that provides medical care for children from birth to age 21,” said Dr. Brent Silvey, President of Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics. “We realize there is nostalgia for our former bear family mark, but we are proud to have a mark that represents our practice today.” The bear mark was drawn by Julia Robinson, wife of the practice cofounder, Dr. Joe T. Robinson, in 1983 and was loved by families who visited the clinic since the 1980s. The new sunny logo was created by Marty Lane, a graphics design professor at the University of Arkansas and a mother of two. Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics will be having special events at the clinic during the month of September to celebrate the cheery new look.
