Newport: The New Portal to Medicine

Your presence is requested this Thursday at noon for a ribbon cutting and meet & greet reception at the new Continuity Care Clinic (details below).  We are really wanting to have a great crowd for this event to welcome four new internal medicine residents.  Please confirm if you will or will not be able to attend.

Unity Health-Harris Medical Center is proud to announce that primary care availability in Newport has been expanded by four physicians. The addition of a new Continuity Care Clinic, located at 1200 McLain St., Suite G, will provide four Internal Medicine Residents, who are included in Unity Health’s inaugural class of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) program. “These physicians are fully licensed practitioners who are now residents in training. They have the capability of building their own practice, with a solid patient base, while serving in Newport,” says Darren Caldwell, VP/Administrator of Unity Health-Harris Medical Center.  “We feel like this is a phenomenal recruitment opportunity, because these doctors will have already grown their own practice over the past three years. This provides excellent incentive to retain physicians right here in Newport by growing our own.”

A benefit of this type of clinic is the focused attention of all four providers who are following the patient’s medical needs. The Continuity Care Clinic will be available every Thursday from 8:00am – 5:00pm. Appointments can be made by calling 870-523-9852.

The community is invited to attend a ribbon cutting and meet & greet reception on their first day in the clinic on Thursday, November 12th from 12:00 – 1:00.  Ribbon cutting will be in front of the south medical office building across from the hospital at 12:00 noon, with reception following in the hospital community Room. The community is encouraged to come meet these doctors, with open arms, to display that wonderful southern hospitality and entice these potential full time doctors to lay down permanent stakes in Newport.
