WellMed Medical Group is expanding into East Austin.
WellMed Senior Clinic at Rosewood, 2222 Rosewood, is set to open Nov. 1. The 7,800-square foot facility will be the fourth WellMed clinic in Austin.
WellMed is one of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation, largely due to its commitment to change the face of healthcare delivery for seniors. The diversified healthcare company invested more than $800,000 in the East Austin location, which is accepting Medicare patients and those enrolled in a qualifying Medicare Advantage plan through Physicians Health Choice, a subsidiary HMO.
The Rosewood clinic features several senior-friendly features found at most new WellMed clinics, such as no-glare lighting, non-slip flooring and extra-wide hallways. The clinic has nine patient examination rooms, a laboratory and plenty of free parking. The facility also is equipped for the addition of X-ray services in the future.
WellMed officials expect the clinic will serve a critical void in East and South Austin.
"We are in the business of serving Medicare-eligible seniors, so setting up a clinic in the heart of East Austin has been a goal since we opened our first clinic in the city two years ago," said Dr. Carlos Hernandez, President of WellMed Medical Group. "We're here because, frankly, Austin has a great need for primary care providers who accept Medicare patients."
Dr. Jennifer Tutt has joined WellMed as the first primary care provider at Rosewood clinic. Licensed by the American Board of Family Medicine, Dr. Tutt earned her medical degree in 2000 from MCP Hahnemann University (now Drexel College of Medicine) in Pennsylvania. She has been in Austin since 2006, serving patients at the Austin Diagnostic Clinic, and Scott and White.
