Scott & White Healthcare to open new Round Rock primary care clinic
- Medical care closer to home; less travel for patients -
ROUND ROCK, Texas – On November 25, Scott & White Healthcare will open a brand new primary care clinic at 1800 South AW Grimes Boulevard, Round Rock, TX 78664-7424 located at the intersection of Gattis School Road and AW Grimes in Round Rock. The 10,300-square foot clinic contains 12 patient exam rooms and one treatment room, and will offer primary care services, as well as on-site x-ray and laboratory services.
"We’re opening this clinic to meet the growing needs of our community coupled with the increased demand for primary care services in the area," said Colleen Sundquist, vice president for Scott & White Clinics - Round Rock Region. "Opening a clinic here offers residents more convenient care closer to home. If higher-level medical care is needed, patients can also access our specialty or hospital services in Round Rock six miles away."
Sundquist went on to explain that the Scott & White integrated care model is unique in that all of the physicians share one electronic medical record, which allows for the most efficient and coordinated care for patients without unnecessary testing. The new electronic medical record includes a patient portal called Scott & White MyChart, which allows patients to go online, schedule appointments, get lab results, communicate with doctors, and order prescription refills.
Anuj Sharma, MD, family medicine physician, will see patients at the new clinic starting November 25, and is relocating her practice from the Scott & White - Round Rock West Clinic at 16420 RR 620 to the new clinic.
Scott & White Healthcare also offers same-day appointments for most services at the clinic. Patients can be seen at the new Round Rock clinic Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information on the clinic or same-day appointments, please call 512-244-5700 or visit www.sw.org.
