AUSTIN, Texas – April 15, 2015 – Ascension Seton and RediClinic LLC, the leading operator of retail-based clinics in Central Texas, have announced three new RediClinic openings.
The new Seton-affiliated RediClinics are located in H-E-B stores in Cedar Park, Dripping Springs and Round Rock. This increases the total number of Austin-area RediClinics to nine. The other six are located in three Austin H-E-Bs and stores in Kyle, Leander and Round Rock.
“From a consumer perspective, a RediClinic in your local grocery store is convenient and connects you to Ascension Seton medical specialists if you need them,” said Tom Gallagher, executive vice president of Ascension Seton and president of Ascension Seton Ventures. “From a mission perspective, the Seton/RediClinic partnership helps integrate the healthcare delivery system so it better caters to Central Texans’ needs and ensures the best patient care.”
In recent years, walk-in clinics have grown in popularity as they provide more flexible hours and lower cost options for medical care – particularly for minor illnesses and preventative treatments. Locations of the new clinic openings are:
- Dripping Springs ( 598 Hwy 290, Dripping Springs): Opened Thursday, April 2
- Cedar Park ( 170 E. Whitestone, Cedar Park): Opening Thursday, April 30
- Round Rock ( 250 University Blvd., Round Rock): Opens Thursday, April 16
All three clinics will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
“The addition of three new RediClinics in Central Texas is consistent with our mission to provide local residents with easier access to high-quality, affordable healthcare,” said RediClinic CEO Web Golinkin. “The partnership we forged with Ascension Seton last year is beginning to bear fruit in many ways, and we are excited to be expanding our service to these communities.”
