9/7/2012

Winchester, KY  – Clark Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce the opening of The Clark Clinic. The clinic is located in the Medical Office Plaza adjacent to Clark Regional Medical Center at 225 Hospital Drive, Suite 200. The clinic is staffed with three new pediatrics Mary Beth Doyle, MD, Gregory Rupp, MD, and CaraLee Blair, DO as well as two new family practice physicians Stacy Taylor-Hunt, DO and Michelle Carpenter, MD. The clinic is accepting new patients, caring for infants to seniors and everyone in between and offering same day appointments.

“We are blessed in this community to have wonderfully strong, good primary care doctors. This is not just about the clinic, it’s about the need for additional primary care. My goal is to get everybody’s practice full and we can just keep bringing in more as people fill up,” said Kathy Love, Clark Regional CEO.

The Clark Clinic is the first of several services that will be opening in the plaza.
Clark Regional Immediate Care currently located on the Bypass will be relocating to The Clark Clinic in October offering extended and weekend hours. Clark’s Diagnostic Center for Women located inside the hospital will move to the plaza at the end of September. The Diagnostic Center is a women focused diagnostic center offering one on one patient care and the latest digital technology. Center for Rehabilitation, which offers outpatient physical and occupational therapy currently located on the bypass at Immediate Care will move to the plaza in October. In addition a new specialty clinic for specialists including pulmonology and sleep medicine will also open later this year.

“Having multiple services at one location near the hospital will make it much more convenient for patients. People are busy. People need to get back to work and people need their primary needs taken care of so we are trying to make that as convenient as possible. We want to make it easy for the patient. That’s our ultimate goal,” said Love.
