Cypress Heart and Southwest Medical Center are pleased to announce the clinic has moved into a new space.
Effective Thursday, Jan. 20, Cypress Heart Outreach Clinic, which had been on the east side of the local health care facility along with the cancer center of the hospital, was relocated within Southwest Medical Center.
“We are pleased to provide better facilities for Cypress Heart which will bring better comfort and confidentiality to their patients,” Norm Lambert, CEO/President of Southwest Medical Center, said.
Southwest Medical Center Plant Operations staff has been working on the clinic’s new location, a portion of an area in the hospital previously occupied by the in-patient Psychiatric Unit.
“Our staff has been painting and doing other things to make the area comfortable for patients as well as meet the needs of the Cypress Heart staff and has more planned for the area,” Nancy Kletecka, Public Relations Director for SWMC, said, adding that the comfort includes available parking. “Patients who come to Southwest Medical Center for those particular services are able to park on the north side of the hospital and go straight into the clinic.”
Fencing that was around a section outside of the north entry has been taken down for easier access to that area as well, according to Kletecka.
Patients coming to Southwest Medical Center for the Cancer Center will continue to be seen in the clinic area on the east side of the hospital.
Southwest Medical Center is proud to be able to assist in providing the services of Cypress Heart, which supports several satellite clinics across the state of Kansas and into Oklahoma, for the patients in this area. Patient care and follow-up may be handled at these clinic sites.
