Health Services of North Texas Acquires Family Health Care, Inc.
Health Services of North Texas announces that Family Health Care Inc. (FHC) staff, services and patients will now be part of HSNT. The addition of prenatal care, family planning and general women’s health care services will strengthen accessibility of women’s health care in the Denton and surrounding communities.
Former Executive Director of Family Health Care, Inc., Patrice Capan, RN, CNS-BC, sees this as a move that will, “create a Medical Home for our patients and their families.” Mrs. Capan will stay on as Lead Clinician for HSNT’s South Denton Center.
With the addition of the prenatal, family planning and women’s specific healthcare, Health Services of North Texas is able to provide a full continuum of medical services.
A message from CEO of Health Services of North Texas, Doreen Rue, LMSW-AP, ACSW, NCG: “This is an opportunity for our Mission to drive us- to ensure that these valuable women’s health services continue to be available. HSNT commends the staff and Board of FHC for their work and dedication to our community. There is natural synergy between the organizations and joining forces makes sense- especially to the patients! Our goal is to strengthen the continuum of care by bringing Women’s healthcare services into our Medical Home model of care.”
Patients will enjoy a seamless transition with providers, services, location and hours remaining the same at this time. Women’s healthcare will still take place at HSNT’s South Denton Center located in the Denton Regional Professional Building.
Current Family Health Care patients will receive increased access to primary health care services at HSNT’s Denton Medical Center location. This is a win for all parties involved. Patients will have greater access to healthcare resources through one organization, Health Services of North Texas while receiving exceptional quality of care.
Often times mother’s would give birth and have no idea who to choose for pediatric care or follow-ups leaving a significant gap in services. The joint forces created through this acquisition will put systems in place to reduce the number of infants and children who do not have a Medical Home. With the addition of Dr. Greg Jackson, Pediatrician, HSNT will have a strong pediatric program to care for infants and children.
Health Services of North Texas is a Medical Home for the entire family from infants to grandparents with a wide range of primary care, behavioral health, women’s healthcare, prenatal services, chronic and infectious disease care, and guardianship services. HSNT is committed to providing for the healthcare needs of our community.
