Baylor Scott & White Health today announced the roll out of five primary care clinics in Tom Thumb stores throughout North Texas. The first clinic, located in the Tom Thumb at 315 S. Hampton Road, opened this week in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, while four additional clinics will open during April and May.
The clinics are operated by the health care system’s affiliate, HealthTexas Provider Network, a multi-specialty medical group that employs more than 1,300 providers practicing in the North Texas area.
A first-of-its-kind offering from the largest not-for-profit health care system in the state, Baylor Scott & White Convenient Care Clinics were developed in an effort to serve more communities via primary care clinics located in areas where North Texans are living and working, a press release stated.
The clinics will offer services, including treating minor illnesses and injuries, chronic disease management, immunizations, physicals and health screenings. In addition, any patient who receives care at the clinics will be connected to the greater network of primary care and specialty care physicians via Baylor Scott & White’s electronic health record system.
