NEA Baptist Clinic

Meet and Greet Reception with New Physicians

Jonesboro, Ark., August 29, 2013 - On September 26, 2013, NEA Baptist Clinic will be hosting a meet and greet reception at NEA Baptist Clinic Wellness Center from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. The reception will allow members of the community the opportunity to meet and visit with the newest physicians who have joined the elite group of over 100 physicians at NEA Baptist Clinic. 
In order to better serve the community, NEA Baptist Clinic has added approximately 20 new physicians specializing in areas such as family practice, oncology, gynecologic oncology, pediatrics, infectious disease, urology, cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, optometry, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology in the last two years. To date, NEA Baptist Clinic offers services in over 35 specialties.
Included in the list of new physicians, there have been five practice acquisitions. In 2012, NEA Baptist Clinic acquired Pediatric Associates of Jonesboro, Advanced Orthopaedics, Inc. of Jonesboro, and the practice of orthopedic surgeon Ron Schechter, MD.  In 2013, NEA Baptist Clinic acquired Arkansas Urology in Jonesboro and Brookland Family Medicine in Brookland. NEA Baptist Clinic also opened a second dialysis location in Jonesboro, as well as established new physical therapy practices in Paragould and Trumann.
The new specialties and services lines added recently at NEA Baptist Clinic have been a direct result of the needs throughout the community and the construction of the new NEA Baptist medical campus. The new Cancer Center, which will be the only one of its kind in the region, has allowed NEA Baptist to expand current oncology services and to add radiation oncology to the list of services offered. The NEA Baptist Cancer Center will open in late 2013.
The meet and greet reception, to be held at the NEA Baptist Clinic Wellness Center at 2617 Phillips Drive in Jonesboro, will give patients and community members the opportunity to meet the new physicians in a non-clinical setting and to become more familiar with the services they offer. There will also be the opportunity to tour the Wellness Center and to learn more about the classes and services offered in the facility. Light refreshments will be served.
If there are any questions about the event, please call the NEA Baptist Clinic Corporate office at 934-5101.
