CommUnityCare Health Centers announced Nov. 1 it has purchased the five Carousel Pediatrics locations in Central Texas.

"Carousel Pediatrics cares for 30,000 underserved Austin-area children each year," CommUnityCare CEO Dr. Jaeson Fournier said in a news release. "This acquisition means CommUnityCare will have the ability to care for even more patients at more locations in the years to come.”

Carousel Pediatrics specializes in providing medical, dental and therapy services at its five locations:

  • 1201 S. I-35, Ste. 303, Round Rock

  • 6425 S. I-35, Ste. 100, Austin

CommUnityCare is an independent private nonprofit that provides services at 23 locations throughout Central Texas, and the acquisition of Carousel Pediatrics brings that total to 28 locations. Fournier said in the news release that CommUnityCare plans to maintain the Carousel locations' existing hours and schedules, including on evenings and Saturdays. A CommUnityCare representative said the Carousel Pediatrics locations will maintain their names and branding for now. Carousel: 512-744-6000. CommUnityCare: 512-978-9000.
