San Marcos, Texas – CHRISTUS Health is further expanding its medical footprint in Central Texas with the introduction of CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic (CTC), a multi-specialty medical group with more than 1,100 clinicians serving Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. As part of its entrance into the San Marcos community, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic is joining forces with Live Oak Health Partners effective Monday, November 1, 2021.

Since its founding, Live Oak Health Partners has provided primary care and specialty care to Central Texas with locations in San Marcos and Wimberley. The group of 28 physicians and advanced care clinicians have long been committed to excellence specializing in maintaining the health of the community with Family Medicine and Internal Medicine along with a wide range of specialty care, including: Cardiology, ENT, Pulmonology & Critical Care, General Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology.

“Live Oak Health Partners has built a high-quality physician practice focused on the needs of our patients, and we look forward to bringing their superior clinical expertise and high patient satisfaction to our CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic team here in Central Texas,” said Jennifer Beal, CTC Chief Administrative Officer. “CTC is continuing to expand our clinical team and we look forward to bringing in more clinicians to serve this community in the near future. We are stronger together. Central Texas should feel really good about the future of health care for adults and children.”

Thomas McKinney, President, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital – San Marcos says CHRISTUS aims to offer seamless connections to affordable and exceptional medical care.

“We are constantly working to determine the very best ways to provide health care to our Central Texas families, and we know one the most effective ways to do that is to have great relationships and great teams,” he said. “The addition of Live Oak Health Partners to the CTC team further enhances our work to better be able to meet our community’s needs.”

Kathleen Chomel, Clinic Operations Director, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic, echoed McKinney’s excitement.

“We believe the real benefit is for the people of the San Marcos community. The people we serve will not only have expanded access to a well-respected, strong network of experts and resources, but also a new electronic health record (EHR) system called Epic, which will give patients access to MyChart, the electronic patient portal within the system.”

With Epic, providers and patients benefit from a safe, seamless and integrated set of electronic applications with convenient access to information. The system is designed to facilitate and improve the overall patient care experience.
