Scott & White Healthcare to open clinic in Avery Ranch
- Health system bringing care close to home; less travel for patients -
CENTRAL TEXAS – Later this summer, Scott & White Healthcare will open a primary care clinic in Avery Ranch at the southeast corner of West Parmer Lane and Avery Ranch Boulevard. The 9,100-square-foot clinic will offer primary care services, house four physicians, and include obstetrics and gynecology care. The clinic will have 12 patient exam rooms, one treatment room, on-site x-ray, and laboratory services.
"This was an opportunity for us to meet the needs of the Avery Ranch community coupled with increased demand for primary care services in the area," said Colleen Sundquist, administrator, for Scott & White - Round Rock Region clinics. "Having a clinic located here will offer patients more convenient care closer to their homes in Avery Ranch. If more complex care is needed, patients can access our specialty or hospital services in Round Rock."
Sundquist went on to say that "the Scott & White Healthcare model is unique in that all physicians are integrated and share a single medical record, which allows for better coordinated care without duplicative testing."
Julie Kappler, MD, a family medicine physician, will see patients at the new clinic. Additional physicians are still being recruited.
Scott & White Healthcare signed a lease with developer StoneCrest Investments in their newest development, the Shops at Avery Ranch II.
"We’re excited to be working with Scott & White Healthcare as an integral component of our new project. Their primary care clinic will fill a critical void for quality medical care in the community of Avery Ranch and Northwest Austin," states Matt Marshall, Project Leasing Director of StoneCrest Investments.
The Shops at Avery Ranch is a 56,000 square-foot mixed use, neighborhood shopping center located in Northwest Austin, TX.
