Garland ISD Employee Clinic Holds Grand Opening

 

With healthcare costs on the rise, Garland ISD aspired to create an affordable and convenient resource for its employees. After months of planning, construction and fine-tuning, the GISD Employee Clinic opened Wednesday, April 1.

 

“This will be a great advantage to GISD,” said Employee Clinic Manager Christi Rachal. “We have a very friendly, well-experienced staff. Since we are not open to the public, we are not going to be cattle herders. We are going to get to know you as an individual.”

All full-time staff members, as well as their spouses and dependents, can take advantage of this brand-new clinic, located at 3121 N. President George Bush Highway, Suite B3, Garland 75040.

Regardless of medical insurance enrollment, the clinic accepts patients with symptoms of minor illnesses, such as cough, sore throat and sinus pressure. A $10 flat service fee is taken at the front desk upon arrival.

Walk-ins are accepted from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and appointments are scheduled from 3-7 p.m. Monday-Friday.

“Call the clinic and we will offer the first-available appointment.” Rachal explained. “If you are at school, start feeling bad and it is 12 noon, you just come to the clinic. We will take care of you and get you back to work. We look forward to serving the GISD community.”
