EAGLE RANCH FAMILY MEDICINE CENTER TO HOST OPEN HOUSE ON DEC. 8


FORT WORTH—The UNT Health Science Center officially opens the Eagle Ranch Family Medicine Center Wednesday, Dec. 8, with a ribbon cutting and open house from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“We are pleased to offer the families and individuals who live in this rapidly growing area the health care they need to keep them healthy,” said Ronald Blanck, DO, president of the health science center.

The center, located at 7235 Boat Club Road, is the newest in the UNT Physicians Group providing family medical care to residents in the Eagle Mountain, Lake Worth and Saginaw areas. The Eagle Ranch Family Medicine Center has been officially open since Nov. 1.

Jill Gramer, DO, and Yung Chen, DO, moved their practices from the health science center’s Saginaw Clinic on Oct 26, resuming practice at the Eagle Ranch Center on Nov. 1.

To build the new facility, the health science center entered into a long-term lease agreement and partnership with Gary Baker Construction Company of Fort Worth. The approximately 5,300-square-foot-clinic has eight exam rooms, three minor procedure rooms, staff physician offices, a student study area and a large waiting room. Dr. Blanck said that a 5,000-square-foot Specialty Clinic is also planned for the site.

Groundbreaking ceremonies for the facility were on May 13.

Marc B. Hahn, DO, dean of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at the health science center, said that the Eagle Ranch Center will also be a clinical rotation site for medical students and students enrolled in TCOM’s physician assistant studies program.

The clinic is one of eight clinics operated by the UNT Health Science Center’s Physicians Group.
