TRINITY, TEXAS (August 9, 2017)... CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial Clinics opened its latest outpatient clinic Monday, August 7 in Trinity. The Memorial Clinics Trinity Family Medicine is located at 315 Prospect Drive in Trinity.
Pediatrician Amol Deshpande, M.D. and Family Medicine physician Lawrence Quan, M.D. and their staff joined the Memorial team this month after the outpatient clinic's former managing partner said it would no longer provide service and CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial officially signed a management service agreement with the Trinity Memorial Hospital District Board and its outpatient clinic. Certified Nurse Midwife Crystal Smith from Lufkin will also be joining the clinic.
"We look forward to working with the residents in Trinity to provide them with high quality health care, and we are excited about being a part of the Trinity community," said CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial Market CEO Monte Bostwick.
CHI St. Luke's Health does not anticipate any job loss with the transition.
