HealthTexas Medical Group offers tailored care for older people, including at a recently opened South Side clinic.
The association, which does business under the umbrella of HealthTexas Primary Care Doctors, has 17 offices located in and around the greater San Antonio area.
Fifteen are in San Antonio proper, plus Boerne and New Braunfels, with one planned for the Schertz/Cibolo vicinity in 2021.
The Highlands venue opened in July at 1910 S. New Braunfels Ave.
Featuring six exam rooms and a procedure workspace, the 2,800-square-foot building, by design, is one level, creating easy access for elderly clients.
Another benefit: free parking, often nonexistent at many medical facilities, staffers said.
“We’ve been growing at a rapid pace,” said Executive Marketing Director Patricia “Tricia” Lopez. “We only provide services for what we do best — primary care with an emphasis on senior care with Medicare beneficiaries.”
The privately held company, owned by a group of physicians, employs about 400 with CEO Kristi Clark at the helm. She’s a seasoned industry veteran who has been practicing internal medicine for more than 20 years.
“Our legal name is HealthTexas Medical Group, but through research, we’ve learned that not everyone understands ‘medical group,’ which is why we use ‘HealthTexas Primary Care Doctors’ in a lot of our advertising,” Lopez said.
Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
