Uvalde Memorial Hospital Announces Closing of Sabinal Family Medicine Clinic
Due to the tough economic times and recent cutbacks in healthcare services reimbursement, Uvalde Memorial Hospital (UMH) has made the difficult decision to close Sabinal Family Medicine on April 20, 2012.
The clinic will continue to serve your medical needs until April 13, 2012.
Patients who currently use Sabinal Family Medicine as a primary care facility will need to select a new physician as soon as possible to ensure uninterrupted medical care. Please contact your insurance provider to obtain a list of doctors who can provide care for you and your family.
Once you have selected a new physician, you will need to complete an authorization to release your medical records so that the clinic can forward a copy of your records to your new physician. Your medical records cannot be released without a signed authorization from you, so you may pick up a form from the clinic through April 20th. There will be no charge for copying your record.
After April 20th, your medical records will be maintained and available to you at Uvalde Medical & Surgical Associates, 1195 Garner Field Road, Suite 300, Uvalde, Texas 78801.
To the patients, on behalf of Uvalde Memorial Hospital and Sabinal Family Medicine, we thank you for having chosen Sabinal Family Medicine for your medical care. It has been our pleasure to serve you.
Uvalde Memorial Hospital wishes to extend its thanks to Sabinal Family Medicine employees for their years of dedicated service to the patients of the clinic.
For more information about obtaining your records, please call (830) 988-2985 (prior to April 20th) or 830-278-3086 (after April 20th).
