- Clinic to relocate in increase capacity for growing population -
KILLEEN, Texas – Scott & White Healthcare officially announces plans to relocate its Killeen West Clinic. Due to the threat of inclement weather, a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for this Wednesday was cancelled; however, construction is underway for its new clinic space in west Killeen. The new 14,771 square-foot clinic, located at 4501 Clear Creek Road, will be built to increase clinic capacity to meet the primary care needs to support the growing population. Currently, Scott & White - Killeen West Clinic is located at 1002 Wales Drive. The clinic will relocate to the new location as early as March 2014, when construction is expected to be completed.
"We recognize the importance of responding to the growing and changing demand for family-centered primary care," said Michael Reis, MD, chairman of family medicine for Scott & White Healthcare. "We’re building and expanding to increase our ability to provide quality care to more residents in and around the Killeen."
The clinic features 24 exam rooms and two treatment rooms offering services such as primary care, family medicine including the care of infants and children, women’s health (ob/gyn), as well as on-site x-ray and laboratory services.
Michael O. Kirkpatrick, MD, serves as the medical director for the clinic. Other providers in the clinic include Elena Wilson, MD, Everest Whited, MD, Mariam Karamali, PA, Sarah Crider, PA, and Marcela Anderson, NP.
The new clinic was designed by Michael W. Marrs Architects and built by the Structura Incorporated.
