In addition, representing Senator Cornyn, Jay Guerrero read a letter wishing the endeavor success and support.
The building is a FQHC, or Federally Qualified Health Center primary care provider, delivering a variety of services including family and industrial medicine programs and services. These include pediatric programs including immunizations, women’s health care, geriatric services, adult medicine, employment and school physicals, occupational health services, minor surgical procedures such as laceration repairs, cyst and wart removals, etc., wellness programs and services, patient counseling and education, and inhouse routine lab services and diagnostic imaging, including x-rays, and CT scans.
Tours of the building after the ribbon cutting revealed exam and treatment rooms, a nursing station, doctor’s offices (three full-time on staff at this time), labs, radiology including a CT scanner with digital files, business offices and break rooms, surgery and recovery rooms, and even a play room for children.
