I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
At Texas Health Resources, we are always looking for ways to help make health care convenient for employees and their employers. With the opening of Texas Health Convenient Care Alliance, we plan to meet the immediate care needs of people who live and work in the North Fort Worth-Alliance area.
Employers will have the convenience of a center close by the workplace that offers drug screenings, breathalyzer tests, physical therapy, injury care, travel medicine, audio screenings and more. In contrast, clinics that focus only on workers comp cases often turn people away if the issue is not work related.
Texas Health Convenient Care Alliance is intended to eliminate that inconvenience. An employee suffering from an ailment that may or may not be work related can come in to the Convenient Care Center and know that they will be seen regardless of whether it is a workers comp situation.
In addition, residents of Alliance will appreciate the walk-in convenience of a primary care clinic close to home. The clinic will be able to diagnosis and treat a variety of non-life-threatening ailments and get people back on the road to feeling better and being productive. The clinic will be open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. with walk-ins welcome.
Texas Health Convenient Care Alliance is just one of the approaches we’re taking to improve the health of the people in the communities we serve.
For our faith-based family of hospitals — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
