ETMC Offering Primary Care to Hurricane Refugees

ETMC offering primary care to hurricane refugees

 

 

Hurricane refugees in East Texas needing to visit a primary care doctor for immediate healthcare needs can visit select ETMC First Physicians without concern for ability to pay.

 

This policy will be in effect through September 16. As the disaster relief systems continue to evolve, this approach will be extended as needed.

 

Adults or children from Louisiana can take advantage of these visits at select ETMC First Physician clinics at Fifth Street Medical Plaza in Tyler, Whitehouse, Lindale and Chandler. Clinic locations and times are listed below.

 

“We understand that many of those stranded in East Texas are dealing with conditions such as respiratory problems and sinus conditions, as well as the need for prescriptions,” said Kim Pearson-Wahl, vice president of ETMC physician services. “The physicians of ETMC want to make their services available to care for our neighbors in need.” 

 

Please call 596-ETMC (3862) to schedule an appointment. A representative will be able to provide directions to the participating clinic closest to you. To qualify patients will be asked to present identification showing that they are Louisiana residents.
