Look How Far We’ve Come!

Dr. Howard Rice founded Town & Country Pediatrics as a solo practice on Chicago’s North Side in 1972. Thanks to our loyal Town & Country families, we’ve grown since then.

1972 - Town & Country Pediatrics founded in Lincoln Park by Dr. Howard Rice.

1980 - Opened a second Town & Country Pediatrics location in the North Suburbs.

1994 - Our first Certified Nurse Practitioner joined the practice.

1997 - A third Town & Country Pediatrics location was opened in the North side of Chicago.

2006 - Increased services for our families by adding Mental Health providers.

2016 - We finalized our partnership with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.

2020 - We re-located our Lincoln Avenue location to the new Lurie Children’s Outpatient Center in Skokie. Our Skokie facility is conveniently located next to Lurie Children’s specialists including cardiology, genetics, allergy, and dermatology.
