Scott & White Healthcare opened a brand new, 12,000+-square-foot family medicine clinic at 1007 South U.S. Hwy 183 in Leander today, January 23. Plans for the clinic, which includes primary care physicians, specialty physicians, and physical therapy services, were first announced in April 2011. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 2 at 4:00 p.m.
Specialty care services include cardiology, psychology, orthopedics, and podiatry. The clinic features 14 exam rooms, two treatment rooms, on-site X-ray, laboratory services, and a physical therapy rehabilitation gym. Clinic hours are 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday.
“By bringing family medicine and specialty medical care to Leander, we can better serve our patients and bring them the care they need closer to home,” said Colleen Sundquist, regional clinic administrator for Scott & White Healthcare – Round Rock.
Sundquist went on to say that “we responded to a growing need in the community for family medicine, specialty care and physical therapy services by building this clinic in Leander. A Leander location offers more convenient care in the right place at the right time for patients coming in from outlying communities like Liberty Hill.”
Benjamin Smith, MD, a family medicine physician, expands his practice to join the Leander clinic and will also continue seeing patients at Scott & White’s Cedar Park Clinic. In Leander he will serve as the new clinic’s Medical Director. Lynne Scanlan, DO, family medicine physician, also will accept patients at the new clinic.
Until the opening of Scott & White Clinic – Leander, Scott & White physical therapy patients traveled to Round Rock from Leander or Cedar Park for care, which sometimes involved multiple appointments with a therapist per week. The new Leander Clinic includes two therapists. Physical therapy services are available from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Patients can make an appointment by calling 512-260-4900.
Scott & White signed an agreement with Development 2000 based in Austin to build and lease the space, which sits on a two-acre lot. A groundbreaking ceremony took place in May 2011.
