McLane Children’s Specialty Clinic becomes first to display name and logo
The McLane Children’s Specialty Clinic celebrated its one year anniversary and became the first medical facility in Temple to display the Baylor Scott & White Health name and logo.
“When this clinic opened a year ago, the goal was to improve the coordination of care for children,” said Reddy Beeram, MD, physician-in-chief for McLane Children’s and chair for department of pediatrics. “It is not just about meeting a goal, but exceeding it, evolving it so that we can provide the best care possible for children.”
The vision for the specialty clinic has been fulfilled with the joining of general and subspecialty pediatric care in one location so that children could have quality care close to home. Now as part of Baylor Scott & White Health, the clinic’s vision is looking forward to a future bright with possibilities for all children.
“Our hope is that children and their families will continue to see McLane Children’s Hospital as a place of faith, hope, health and wellness, where care is delivered with integrity, an attitude of servanthood and teamwork,” said Joel Allison, Baylor Scott & White Health chief executive officer. “Tonight, the Baylor Scott & White Health sign was lit for the first time on this campus and marks our ongoing commitment to provide compassionate care for children in Central Texas and beyond.”
Since the clinic’s opening in February 2014, it has accommodated more than 80,000 patient visits. Many of those patients live in Central Texas, but others have come from other Texas cities such as Amarillo, Abilene, Odessa, Victoria and from other states including New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and Washington.
“When Baylor and Scott & White came together, this was the essence of our vision,” said Drayton McLane, chairman for Baylor Scott & White Health Board of Trustees. “We want to build a healthy community and it begins with our children. As we move into the future, community health is the key to our growth and development.”
More information about the new multispecialty clinic building, and a map with directions to the campus, is available at swchildrens.org.
