SAN ANTONIO — H-E-B has opened two more clinics offering comprehensive health care services.
The newest H-E-B Wellness Primary Care clinic opened last week at 8601 South Congress Avenue in Austin. Another clinic in central Texas debuted earlier in May.
“In everything we do, our goal at H-E-B is to take care of Texans with a servant heart and a best-in-class experience you can trust. We believe that food plays an integral role in well-being, and as one of the largest sellers of food in the state of Texas, we’re committed to making it easy for Texans to live better and healthier,” says company president Craig Boyan.
Whether consumers are navigating the healthcare system due to a chronic disease diagnosis or simply trying to keep their family healthy, managing health and well-being have become increasingly complicated. Despite the growing focus on health today, consumers struggle to navigate their health journeys on their own. It can feel like a huge burden financially and emotionally. Everyone is seeking unbiased, reliable information and simple solutions to meet their unique health and wellness needs.
The clinics strive to be that trusted partner. H-E-B Wellness Primary Care board-certified doctors spend the time to better understand their patients and help them stay healthy or manage chronic illnesses by working with registered dietitians with a holistic, food-first philosophy. Dietitians provide personalized consultations, virtual and in-store walks, and friendly pharmacists are available to answer medication questions and have prescriptions filled when customers pick up their grocery order. H-E-B has provided these services to employees and their families for many years and is now striving to be Texans’ one stop health and wellness destination.
This new innovative platform provides products, services, and digital solutions including:
Already operating in Houston and San Antonio, H-E-B Wellness Primary Care offers full service primary care for all individuals age 12 and up, operating in coordination with registered dietitians with a food first philosophy rooted in science. In addition to primary care, services include physical therapy, health/nutrition coaching, clinical pharmacists, specialty referrals, and labs to create a coordinated approach to healthcare under one roof. The clinics are staffed by board-certified physicians, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals. H-E-B plans on rapidly expanding throughout Texas with both primary care and nutrition services over the next few years.
The clinics provide patient-centered care with affordable individual visit pricing and the option of monthly subscriptions, removing the frustration of surprise medical billing and enabling clinicians to focus on each patient, taking the time that is necessary to support them on their wellness journey. They accept cash, credit, and flexible spending account payments. No insurance is needed.
The Austin location will be led by Dr. Holly Easton a board-certified osteopathic family medicine physician who has been in practice for over 20 years. She is trained in the use of diet and lifestyle to improve health and wellness as well as to decrease the risks of chronic illness. She attended Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and completed a residency in family medicine.
She will be joined by Amanda Rowe, who is a family nurse practitioner who graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2017. She is a member of the AANP, was awarded the International Nurses Association Top Nurses’ Award in 2018 and is a certified FMCSA provider.
