For Immediate Release: Angel Kids Pediatrics Set to Reopen Northside Location on Monday, June 22, 2020 and with a New Provider
Jacksonville, FL, June 22, 2020 Angel Kids Pediatrics, the largest private pediatric practice in Northeast Florida, is reopening their Northside office, located at 2040 Riverview Street. Much like most organizations around the world, Angel Kids Pediatrics has felt the economic impact of COVID-19 and was forced to consolidate its 7 offices into 4 main hubs for patients to access.

However, Angel Kids Pediatrics recognizes that now, more than ever, there is a need for our patients to have access to healthcare. Duval County is comprised of urban, suburban and pockets of rural areas. The Duval County Department of Health has divided the county into six Health Zones based off zip codes. The Northside falls into Health Zone 1, where poverty is most prevalent in Duval County. Our Northside office serves a medically underserved area that suffers from a lack of access to healthcare, which commonly results in overuse of emergency room visits. To combat this, we offer primary and specialized pediatric care to our patients and provide innovative preventive health educational programs. Additionally, our Northside location is a National Health Service Corp site and will not deny access to patients based on an inability to pay for healthcare. Patients at this location may be eligible for our sliding fee discount program if they do not have private insurance, Medicaid, or CHIP. Patients can call or ask front desk staff for more information.

To best provide care to our patients at our Northside location, in addition to reopening, we have also expanded our hours of operation. The Northside office will be open Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and our telehealth services are available to patients as well. Parents can call (904) 224-KIDS (5437) to schedule an appointment. We are also excited to announce that we have a full time pediatrician, Brownhilda Ngwang, D.O. who will be leading the provision of care at the Northside office. Dr. Ngwang is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and passionate physician.

For convenience, we also have other locations that offer Saturday and Sunday hours and offer telehealth services. For more information visit www.myangelkids.com or call 904.224. KIDS (5437).
