MEET THE NEEDS OF AN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITY
As part of its mission of ‘improving the quality of life in our community by providing exceptional healthcare with compassion and respect’ the Frio Regional Hospital governing board is making changes to its facility in Dilley.
The Frio Regional Primary Care and Urgent Care Clinic in Dilley will now be called ReadyCare – Dilley and will also now staff a full-time physician, Dr. Earl “Mac” Marshall Jr., to facilitate patient care.
Dr. Marshall, a Texas native, is certified with the American Board of Family Medicine.
“This is a natural evolution of services for this location,” Frio Regional Hospital Chief Executive Officer John Hughson said. “We opened the clinic in April 2020 to meet the needs of an underserved community and patients in this part of Frio County. The addition of a physician to a facility that already provides easy access and extended hours to the people of Dilley was a natural choice for us.”
“This addition further supports our many services from primary care services and minor emergency treatment to physicals and immunizations,” Hughson said.
In addition to quick, walk-in access and extended hours for primary care services, the ReadyCare – Dilley facility offers adult and pediatric services, along with women’s health/gynecological care, family planning services, disease management, and minor emergency treatment. Other services include x-rays, lab services, physicals, and immunizations. The facility also accepts Medicaid.
“The board and staff at Frio Regional Hospital understand the important role a hospital system plays for the residents of Dilley and the surrounding area,” Hughson said. “This recent investment is just one example of our commitment to South Texas families.”
ReadyCare – Dilley is located at 801 W. FM 117 in Dilley.
