UT Physicians, the clinical faculty practice of the McGovern Medical School at UT Health has experienced unparalleled growth over the last seven years. With offices originally located solely across the street from the McGovern Medical School, UT Physicians now boasts more than 200 clinical sites in and around the Greater Houston Area.
The idea of community-based UT Physicians clinics is one that started with the goal of bringing UT Physicians doctors to the patients. “Back in 2007 and 2008, we created a strategic plan for UT Physicians to follow the growth and population changes in Houston. We knew that if we didn’t grow outside of the Texas Medical Center, we would not survive as a group practice,” says Andrew Casas, chief operating officer of UT Physicians.
The addition of the UT Physicians Pediatric Center at The Woodlands provides a variety of specialty services for children 0 – 18 years in age. Available pediatric specialty services include cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, and neurology. With staff highly trained in all aspects of their job including providing an exceptional patient experience, the clinic is maintaining a 95 – 97% patient satisfaction rating. A dedicated clinic with physicians passionate and honored to treat their patients as part of the UT Physicians growing family. “We’re providing timely pediatric subspecialty care close to home and in your neighborhood,” says Dr. Katherine Velez, Endocrinologist. Thomas Murphy, M.D., assistant dean for community affairs and health policy, says that patients outside of the Texas Medical Center provide stability and long-term patient relationships. “Right care, right place, right cost – it’s a simple concept,” he says.
