Leland Medical Clinic hosts Ribbon Cutting on July 2
(Stoneville, MS) – Delta Health Alliance is hosting a grand opening and ribbon cutting of its Leland Medical Clinic on July 2 from 11:00 – 1:00. Residents and businesses of Leland and the surrounding area are encouraged to tour the clinic at 201 Baker Boulevard to see first-hand the services provided and meet the LMC staff.
Local residents are being offered something that isn’t readily available in small towns anymore – a patient-centered medical home. The Leland Medical Clinic is operating as a patient-centered medical home, in hopes that patients will make the clinic their first stop when medical issues arise. This approach means that a patient’s needs are addressed through a team approach, utilizing staff members such as a community health worker and dietitian, not normally available in rural primary care clinics. All aspects of a patient’s well-being are considered, using enhanced technology, chronic disease management and care coordination. The increased technology includes a system of electronic health records that will increase the quality of care provided while ensuring patient safety.
The Leland Medical Clinic, a certified rural health clinic, is the first to be owned and fully operated by Delta Health Alliance. Under the direction of the new clinic director Jane Calhoun, clinical staffing consists of new and familiar faces: Dr. Bobby Dale, DHA Chief Medical Officer, will have regular office hours at the clinic twice a month while Rhonda Potter, the clinic’s new nurse practitioner, is seeing patients on a full time basis. Former employees, Debra Clark and Flora Byrd, remain on staff as the Office Manager and Clinic Nurse, respectively. Also, added to the clinic team are Lula Reece, Clinical Assistant/Community Health Worker, Nastarcia (Star) Allen, Medical Assistant, and Jameshyia Ballard, Registered Dietitian. Dr. Ned Kronfol will remain as collaborating physician to the nurse practitioner.
