Senior citizens and others in Northeast Tarrant County who have difficulty traveling can now to go one place for most of their health-care needs. Thanks to a newly opened JPS health clinic.
The JPS Medical Home Northeast Tarrant at 3200 W. Euless Blvd. opened Thursday.
The $12-million clinic provides primary care, women’s health, behavioral health, optometry, laboratory, radiology and a drive-through pharmacy.
“Today is a day of accomplishment. This clinic is a prototype of what other clinics can look like in Tarrant County,” said Robert Earley, the president and CEO of the JPS Health Network. “This is all about keeping people healthy.”
The clinic replaces the JPS Northeast Health Center in Bedford, which was overcrowded. Patients waiting for prescriptions lined up in hallways and those waiting for dental appointments often had to sit on the floor.
