Texas Health Breeze Urgent Care opened its doors to patients Nov. 9 at 3805 W. University Drive, Ste. 100, McKinney.

The new urgent care center will offer patients a clinical concierge, who will walk patients through each visit from arrival through discharge. The center will treat common illnesses and injuries such as colds and the flu, minor fractures, skin conditions, sprains and urinary tract infections.


Breeze Urgent Care is part of Texas Health’s $44 million investment in its new urgent care model to offer patients convenient care with upscale amenities and transparent pricing.

“This is not the old, traditional way of providing urgent care,” said Jamie Harraid, Texas Health vice president of ambulatory services, in a statement. “It will open the door to existing and new patients who may not have a relationship with a primary care doctor or for those who like the convenience of urgent care but are looking for a better model.”

The McKinney location is the first of three Texas Health Breeze Urgent Care centers to be opened in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this year with plans for 20 total locations by the summer of 2021. 469-495-9102. https://breezeurgentcare.texashealth.org
