Austin Regional Clinic is happy to announce the opening of a new location to meet growing needs for medical care in Bee Cave, the western Travis County community that has more than doubled in size over seven years.
ARC Bee Cave is staffed by family medicine physician, Dr. Mark Nugent and pediatrician, Dr. Jennifer Christensen, both Bee Cave area residents. Laboratory and radiology services is also available at the clinic.
"We're thrilled to be practicing at ARC Bee Cave, allowing us to do what we love — providing medical care for families — in the same community we live and raise our children," said Dr. Nugent.
Located at 15801 W. SH 71, Building 1, across the highway from the Nitro swimming facility, the 7,700-square-foot facility is Austin Regional Clinic's 24th clinical location in Central Texas. ARC Bee Cave offers same-day appointments, 24/7 phone and online scheduling, the ARC MyChart patient portal and nursing services through the night, as well as flu shots, well-check exams and more.
Like much of Texas, Bee Cave has seen a surge of population growth, from about 4,000 residents in 2010 to more than 8,000 today, making it one of the state's fastest-growing cities.
"Rapid growth is increasing demand for medical services located close to home and work," said ARC Bee Cave clinic manager Monica Davis. "We are excited to be in the Bee Cave area, offering residents in and around the community access to quality primary care in their neighborhood."
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is at 9am on January 29 with Bee Cave Mayor Caroline Murphy and local dignitaries, and the public is invited.
