Scott & White Healthcare breaking ground for clinic in Leander
LEANDER, Texas – Scott & White Healthcare is building a 12,000+ square-foot clinic at 1007 South U.S. Hwy 183 in Leander, Texas. Expected to be open by the end of this year, the primary care clinic also will include physical therapy services; it will start with two physicians and two therapists. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 17 at the construction site.
Currently, Scott & White physical therapy patients travel to Round Rock from Leander or Cedar Park for care, which can involve multiple appointments with a therapist per week.
“By bringing physical therapy services to Leander, we can better serve our patients and bring them the care they need closer to home,” said C.M. “Bud” Chumbley, M.D., chief medical officer for Scott & White Healthcare – Round Rock. “When we combine both doctors and therapists in one location, it’s a win-win for both our patients and physicians.”
The clinic will feature 16 exam rooms, two treatment rooms, on-site x-ray, and laboratory services.
Dr. Chumbley went on to say that “by building this clinic in Leander, we’re responding to a growing need in the community for these services. A Leander location will offer more convenient care in the right place at the right time for patients coming in from outlying communities like Liberty Hill.”
Benjamin Smith, M.D., a family medicine physician and medical director currently at the Scott & White Cedar Park Clinic, will serve as the new clinic’s medical director and lead the medical staff.
Scott & White signed an agreement with Development 2000 out of Austin to build and lease the space, which sits on a two-acre lot.
