Grand Prairie, TX, may get two health clinics
Fort Worth Star-Telegram, May 28, 2008
JPS Health Network is moving forward with plans to build a community health clinic in Grand Prairie, TX. Because Grand Prairie straddles the border between Tarrant and Dallas counties, officials with JPS had been discussing the possibility of operating a clinic with Parkland Memorial Hospital. After the joint clinic idea proved problematic, the JPS board of managers approved a plan to develop a clinic on the Tarrant County side of the city. The 10,000-square-foot clinic is expected to open in the first half of 2009 and have four full-time physicians and a full-service pharmacy. Parkland representatives said it still hopes to build its own clinic on the Dallas County side of the city.
