Medical City Fort Worth July 06, 2015

Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce Action Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening celebration at the new Plaza Primary Health Clinic, a division of Medical City Fort Worth of Fort Worth.

It is a sobering statistic – 37 percent of Texas physicians who are accepting new patients either decline to accept or limit their acceptance of Medicare patients, according to the Texas Medical Association’s 2014 Survey Report.

Even for younger adults and teens who have health insurance, it’s sometimes a challenge to establish a primary health care “home.” That’s why Medical City Fort Worth is pleased to expand its services with the opening of Plaza Primary Health Clinic on the Plaza campus in the heart of Fort Worth’s Medical District. The clinic, which accepts most insurance and Medicare, celebrated its grand opening on July 2 with an official ribbon cutting conducted by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. Cutting the ribbon were Medical City Fort Worth CEO Clay Franklin, clinic physicians Saji Pillai, M.D., and Morvarid Rezaie, D.O., assisted by Ambassador Chairman Preston Wayman and Plaza V.P. of Business Development Cheryl Harrison.

“We hope to help our Fort Worth neighbors take better care of their health by making it easier to find a quality primary health care home,” Medical City Fort Worth CEO Clay Franklin said. “And, what better place than right here on the Plaza campus, backed by our excellent health care resources?”

The clinic is staffed by board certified internal medicine physicians Saji Pillai, M.D., and Morvarid Rezaie, D.O. Additional physician support will be provided by internal medicine physicians who are completing their medical residencies through Medical City Fort Worth’s physician residency program.

Plaza Primary Health Clinic is located at 1650 W. Rosedale, Suite 301, Fort Worth, 76104. Appointments are available by calling 817-259-4333.
