SIU HealthCare to Open OB/GYN Clinic in Taylorville
Women living in the Taylorville area will soon have the option of receiving gynecological and prenatal care in their hometown. The Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine will begin a weekly clinic in Taylorville on Monday, January 7, 2013. The clinic will be located at 115 East Pleasant St.
OB/GYN Associate Professor Dr. Erica Nelson, Assistant Professor Dr. Yahia Zeino, and Instructor Dr. Arturo Garza-Cavazos will hold general gynecology clinics on Monday mornings, providing general gynecologic care for women. Assistant Professor Dr. Chad Huston will provide prenatal and obstetrical care services on Monday afternoons.
“This clinic will allow our Taylorville patients the opportunity to receive care closer to their home,” said Dr. Ricardo Loret de Mola, professor and chairman of the OB/GYN department. “Easier access to gynecologic and prenatal care will lead to better health outcomes for women living in Christian County.”
Patients can call the SIU HealthCare OB/GYN department at 217-545-8000 and request an appointment at the Taylorville Clinic location.
