The attorneys of Offit Kurman’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) team are pleased to share news of a recent transaction successfully closed for a client of the firm. PM Pediatrics Management Group, LLC has purchased KinderMender Walk-In Pediatric Center. Attorneys Michael N. Mercurio represented KinderMender, the seller, throughout the transaction.

For years, KinderMender has been dedicated to providing parents and children with fast, friendly, and frustration-free pediatric urgent care. With offices in Columbia, Glen Burnie, Timonium, and Laurel, the pediatric center provides seven-day access to highly trained healthcare professionals and caring, comfortable, and attentive environments. KinderMender founder Dr. Keyvan Rafei, named one of Baltimore’s “Top Docs” by Baltimore Magazine, launched the organization to “[offer] top quality medical care without the long waits, indifferent staff, and sterile environment that often characterizes the average doctor’s visit.”

PM Pediatrics is the largest provider of specialized pediatric urgent care in the United States. The organization specializes in treating children and young adults suffering from earaches, fevers, infections, abdominal pain, dehydration, asthma, fractures, wounds requiring stitches, and other urgent medical situations. PM Pediatrics centers are committed to providing top-quality, comfortable, and convenient after-hours care year-round, every day until midnight.

“PM Pediatrics shares our vision of providing the highest quality urgent care to ill and injured children, which is why we have chosen to join them and continue our mission together for the benefit of our community,” a KinderMender statement read.
