Lubbock residents can look forward to a new clinic opening in November.
UMC is expanding its offices to better serve the central and east sides of Lubbock since this clinic will be opening its doors along 1-27 at 41st street.
"We're breaking ground on another new clinic, this one is going to be 9,000 sq. Ft. Geared toward occupational medicine, physical rehab, family medicine, and urgent care and the family medicine part, all payers will be welcome here, Medicare, Medicaid, regardless of the payers," said Paul Acreman who is the Chief Executive Officer for Physician Network Services
Not only will the clinic focus on family and occupational medicine, but it will also be set up to allow potential employees to go there to get the drug tests and physicals they need before starting a new job.
