New Medical Facility Coming to Lubbock

Scott Laboratories, a systems engineering company on Lubbock's North Loop, has broken down the complex system of healthcare in order to re-organize it, optimize it, and give patients what they want: top quality care, in a time efficient manner, at a low cost.

Their vision will come to life on a plot of land at Salem and the Brownfield Highway. It's the future home of Grace Clinic. Cross Point Apartments will have to be torn down to make way for the clinic. Groundbreaking is scheduled for April and they hope to have Grace Clinic up and running within a year. Dr. Randy Hickle, President of Scott Laboratories, says, "We'll have primary care specialties, internal medicine, pediatrics, family practice. We'll also have surgical sub-specialties in medicine. So it'll be a full range."

Focusing only on out-patient care, Grace Clinic's new, streamlined approach will start the moment a patient makes their appointment. During that phone call, every medical concern a patient has will be addressed, saving time on questions usually asked in the office. Hickle says, "They tell us in our research they just don't have time to spend all morning and afternoon going through a clinic experience."

The clinic will be located in the central medical district amongst two towering names in Lubbock medicine. UMC and Covenant declined to comment on the newest member to their medical community, but doctor Hickle is optimist the relationship will be a good one. He says, "I think they'll see a real opportunity here to add value to the healthcare system and build upon what we already have, a great medical community."

Already about 30 area doctors are interested in becoming part of Grace Clinic. They hope to expand that number to 150.
