Hospital pediatric clinic changes offices

Corsicana — Medical Associates of Navarro County’s pediatric clinic, formerly located in the Medical Office Complex next door to Navarro Regional Hospital, began seeing patients May 20 in a newly remodeled suite just a few hundred yards away inside Medical Arts Plaza.

The practices of Dr. Amber Johnston, Dr. Karen Jahnke, Dr. Thomas Sawyerr and Dr. Daniel Maloney are now at the new office location, almost twice the size of the previous suite at just over 7,000 square feet, offers 16 exam rooms, increased physician office space and a divided waiting area for “sick” patients and “well” patients (those visiting for well exams or immunizations). Also included in the new suite is a private nursing area for new moms.

Staff members in the clinic engaged the help of area elementary schools in obtaining original art pieces from students which line the hallways. Fresh paint, carpet, play areas and flat panel TVs and other updates add to the visual appeal and comfort of the waiting areas and exam rooms.

“Aside from the obvious advantages of a bigger space and easier accessibility, the decision to relocate is really to compliment anticipated growth,” said Ricky Villarreal, Navarro Regional’s assistant administrator. “The two new pediatricians that were brought into the practice last year have been thriving and this space supports even more growth.”

“Things are working well for us in the new location,” said Maloney. “Patient flow is easier, the atmosphere is quieter. From a patient satisfaction standpoint, however, the most important change is the sick and well side divided waiting rooms.”

Medical Associates Pediatric clinic will host an Open House for the community to tour the new space and meet the physicians on June 24 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 301 Hospital Drive, Suite 150.
