OU Physicians, the state’s largest physicians group, and Southwest Oklahoma Family Medicine Clinic in Lawton announced today that the clinic will join OU Physicians on July 1. The clinic will continue to provide services and care at the same location at 1202 NW Arlington Avenue in Lawton, but will be renamed “OU Physicians Family Medicine Lawton.”
“By collaborating with OU Physicians, we enhance our already strong connection to the OU Health Sciences Center campus and its vast medical resources. Our patients will have better access to hundreds of adult and children’s specialists and the latest technology at their disposal,” said Dr. Daniel Joyce, medical director of the Lawton clinic. “Our patients will still see familiar faces in our clinic and receive the same quality care, but we will have a stronger relationship with OU and the state’s largest physician practice.”
Located on the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus near downtown Oklahoma City, OU Physicians provides advanced care in almost every adult and child specialty, conducts groundbreaking medical research and helps train the physicians of tomorrow. OU Physicians providers see patients at many of Oklahoma’s premier health care facilities, including the Stephenson Cancer Center, the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, The Children’s Hospital and OU Medical Center, home of the state’s only level one trauma center.
In addition to the new name on the Southwest building, patients will notice that future billing correspondence will come from OU Physicians.
“We are excited about working with clinic leaders in Lawton and enhancing the OU presence there,” said Brian Maddy, OU Physicians chief executive officer. “The clinic and its providers have a wonderful reputation in their community and we look forward to building on our relationship with them.”
Dr. Daniel Joyce, Dr. Bella Carroll, Dr. Penny Hoover, Dr. Joseph Dawley and physician assistants Tom Mills and Amy Hannington provide services at the clinic along with OU Health Sciences Center family medicine residents. Appointments can be made at (580)248-2288.
