EDMOND, Okla.– Mercy Clinic has announced plans to open a permanent clinic, called Mercy Clinic at OC, on Oklahoma Christian University campus. The clinic is expected to open early 2013.
“We remember what it’s like to live on campus,” said Mercy Clinic at OC medical director, Dr. Melinda Cail (daughter of Dr. James Cail, beloved retired Oklahoma Christian University psychology professor who taught more than 30 years at OC). “Students have enough to worry about, so we want to make health care as simple as it can be – and part of that is geography. We want to bring health care within walking distance for these students.”
Kendall Phillips, certified physician assistant, will be the primary provider for the clinic. The clinic will provide a convenient location for students to receive services such as sutures, flu shots, sports physicals, breathing treatments, and general primary care for everyday conditions.
The clinic will be located at 2801 E. Memorial Rd., Suite 140. Until then, students can schedule appointments at nearby Mercy Clinic Edmond Memorial, located at 1919 E. Memorial Rd., by visiting the registration desk in the student union, or by calling (405) 425-6100.
