SALADO, Texas - The Scott & White Salado Family Medicine Clinic will open its doors to patients on Nov. 3.
The recently completed 10,800-square-foot clinic and pharmacy is located at 3525 FM 2484, next to the new Salado High School. The clinic features 13 exam rooms, an 800-square-foot lobby, a covered drop-off area, on-site laboratory services and diagnostic x-ray capabilities.
Dr. William Ligon will lead the clinic medical and support staff of 12. Dr. Cheryl Vera-Burkhalter will join the clinic, as part of plans to expand the medical staff to a total of four physicians.
“Salado is a great community to be a part of, and we look forward to offering our services here,” said Dr. Ligon.
An open house event will held Tuesday, Dec. 9, from 4 to 6 p.m., which will include a welcome ceremony, a ribbon cutting with the Salado Chamber of Commerce, refreshments and tours.
