Baylor Scott and White Health broke ground Monday, July 29, on the future home of its medical services in Burnet. The clinic will be located at 1500 E. Polk Street, across from the Burnet County Sheriff's Office.

At about 8,000 square feet, the new clinic will feature 10 exam rooms and a procedure space. It will offer services that include family medicine, diagnostic X-Ray, and on-site laboratory services.

Once construction is complete, the services at the clinic, currently located at 101 E. Jackson Street, will transition to the new location to better serve the growing medical needs of the area's residents. The new location of Baylor Scott & White Clinic – Burnet is expected to open late spring 2020.

“Baylor Scott & White has a long-standing history in this community, and we're honored to have served at this historic location, which represents the unique charm of Burnet,” said Baylor Scott & White – Hill Country Region president Tim Ols. “While we have enjoyed serving in the heart of downtown, we recognize the area is growing. With this new clinic location, we are expanding to meet the community's needs.”

“In addition to responding to growth in this area, we are putting a greater focus on prevention and wellness to empower our patients so they can live their best possible lives,” said Baylor Scott & White – Hill Country Region chief medical officer Dr. Paul Cook.

In addition to Ols and Cook, others who took part in the groundbreaking ceremony include Dr. Camey Crane, Baylor Scott & White Family Medicine; Lane Luna, nurse practitioner; Cary Johnson, Burnet Economic Development Corporation president; Burnet Mayor Crista Goble Bromley; Leslie Low, BS&W manager of clinic operations; and Dr. Robert Shafer, member of Baylor Scott & White Board of Directors.
