New medical clinic opens in Stinnett

Stinnett, TX - One city in our area is getting a much needed medical resource.

Golden Plains Community Hospital built a brand new medical clinic in Stinnett and it will be open for business Tuesday. The clinic is a resource the city has never had before.

"We wanted to provide one here because there wasn't a health care provider north of Borger," said Golden Plains CEO Kevin Storey. "So we worked with that and the school here agreed to lease us some land and now it's happened, so it's pretty exciting for us."

The hospital built the clinic because they saw a growing need for medical care in that area. "At our hospital, we see roughly about 10 percent of our volumes come from the City of Stinnett. And then there's areas and communities around there that we hope will actually come to see the provider here," said Storey.

The clinic is equipped with three exam rooms and their goal is to serve at least 300 patients a year. Storey said this clinic will help free up space in Golden Plains' ER and the care provided at the clinic will also be more affordable for patients.

Nurse practitioner Lisa Mahler will run the clinic and can offer a variety of services from suturing cuts to prescribing medication. She hopes the convenience factor will attract people who may normally ignore their health problems. "To have someone in the community who can provide your health care to you and not having to drive, I'm hoping it will actually bring those people into the clinic," said Mahler.

The clinic is located at 711 Stewart and will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
