Dr. Mark Cline, who has a full-time practice in Nacogdoches – Cline Family Medicine – is constructing a family medical facility in Center, due to open in December 2012.
The sign at the facility site on Hurst Street states that it will be Cline Family Medicine/Pediatrics & Urgent Care clinic.
The building will be 7,500 square feet and will have 20 examining rooms. Services offered will include pediatric care for infants and children, adult care and urgent/emergency care. On-site will be digital X-ray equipment, lab, and coordinating care with specialists, such as in obstetrics and cardiology.
“We intend for the level of service be really exceptional,” Dr. Cline said. “Patients will be treated in such a way that they know that they are welcome and that we care very much about their well-being. We really want to come in as part of the community and work very hard to gain people’s respect.”
Dr. Cline is a board certified Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine and has been in private practice as a family physician in Nacogdoches since finishing his residency training in 1997. He graduated near the top of his class from the University of Texas Medical School of Texas in 1994. Dr. Cline is a member of the American Medical Association, Texas Medical Association, Nacogdoches-San Augustine Medical Society, American Academy of Family Physicians, and Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
The Center facility will have also have a full-time Board-certified family physician who specializes in pediatric and urgent care. The doctor and his family will live in Center, and their children will attend Center schools.
Besides a full-time resident physician, Dr. Cline will have some hours in Center. There will also be Physician’s Assistants and/or Nurse Practitioners, nurses and office staff. The clinic will employ about 25 people.
The clinic will not be affiliated with the hospital in Center. Dr. Cline is affiliated with Nacogdoches Medical Center with his practice in Nacogdoches. However, he said that the Center patients would have a choice of hospitals they wish to use.
“If someone wants to go to a hospital in Tyler or to Shreveport, instead of Nacogdoches, they may,” he stated.
Center’s Cline Family Medicine/Pediatrics & Urgent Care will have limited evening hours until about 7 p.m. and Saturday hours until 2 p.m. It will be closed on Sunday.
