In a move designed to accommodate a growing patient family and offer easy access, a new facility for the CHRISTUS Southeast Texas health system will open its doors.
The partnership between the new center and CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Orthopedic Specialty Mid County, Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute and CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic will bring some of the area’s skilled orthopedic specialists (John Easton, MD, Stephen Hall, DO and Richard G. Bowling, DPM) and primary care physicians and providers (Kimberly Pitts, DO and Deborah Vanover, NP) under one roof.
Health officials said that over the years, the communities of Fort Arthur, Groves, Fort Niches, the Netherlands and surrounding neighborhoods have increasingly turned to the Orthopedic Specialization Center and the Bumont Bone and Joint Institute for advanced orthopedic care they need.
“As our patient family grows, so does the need for a new space. As a result, orthopedic surgeons John Easton, MD and Stephen Hall, DO, and podiatrist Richard G. Bowling, DPM will move from their two current office locations to one new and spacious suite. Along Route 365 at Port Arthur, “the CHRIST statement said.
Keith Hill, MD, president of the Bone and Joint Boomont Institute, said “We are excited about this new location that will provide more comfort to the comfort of our patients. This move means they will not have to travel miles to get quality care for a full range of orthopedic conditions and injuries.”
In addition, Kimberly Pitts, DO, and nurse, Deborah and Anover from CHRISTUS Family Medicine -Port Neches will move from her current office to the new Mid County location.
Dr. Pitts will continue her years of service in the area as a family physician and concussion specialist. Her expertise and contributions to the Southeast Texas Sports Medicine Program CHRISTUS help maintain the safety and health of our local student-athletes.
“It’s an honor to serve our neighbors in the Mid County community, and we do so in a spirit of love and compassion alongside many of the most experienced and dedicated physicians in the area,” said Paul Travino, President and CEO, CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System.
“Strong partnerships like this allow us to look forward to another 90 years of service ahead.”
