The Palestine Regional Women’s Clinic will host an open house at its new location Thursday.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and the public is invited to come see the new office. There will be hors d’oeuvres and drawings for door prizes.
The Palestine Regional Women’s Clinic offers annual exams, treatment for women’s health problems, pregnancy testing, prenatal and postnatal care and education, as well as pre and post-menopausal information and treatments.
The women’s clinic recently moved from its location in the Palestine Regional Rehab building to its current location in the Medical Office Buildings (MOB), 4002 S. Loop 256, Suite A, which shares a parking lot with the Rehab building.
“Come meet Irene Huerta, our new Certified Women’s’ Health Nurse Practitioner. Enjoy refreshments and learn about the services offered in the Women’s Clinic,” PRMC news release said.
Huerta, the clinic’s new nurse practitioner, graduated from at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio nursing school in 2001. She worked for nine years as a labor and delivery nurse before deciding to go back and get her nurse practitioner degree. She graduated with her Master’s degree as a women’s health nurse practitioner in 2012. She worked as a nurse practitioner in the STD clinic in San Antonio prior to coming to Palestine.
Huerta comes to Palestine with her husband and youngest daughter. Her son lives with his wife in Provo, Utah where they attend BYU. Her oldest daughter attended Texas A&M, but will be taking a break, to serve an 18-month mission for church in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Her husband, a biomedical technician, just started his business here in Palestine, Xceptional Medical Equipment Repair, repairing medical equipment throughout Texas. Her youngest daughter is in eighth grade at Palestine Junior High School.
Assisting Huerta will be Leigh Ann Duhon, LVN, who previously worked with Dr. Bennett before he retired, and Robbin Evans, WHCNP-C who has been at the clinic for a number of years.
“Robbin is a great mentor. Not only is she very knowledgeable, but she is a great example of being personable, caring and a healthcare provider who is truly available to her patients,” Huerta said.
