Tarleton State University

August 15, 2011

STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Cross Timbers Health Clinic celebrated its grand opening Aug. 9 with a ribbon cutting held by the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce. The new facility, located at 135 River North Blvd., will offer medical, dental and mental health services.

Tarleton State University funded research by Dr. Marilyn Duran, assistant professor in Tarleton’s Department of Nursing, who spent more than three years studying the need for affordable healthcare services for low-income residents of Erath County. Her findings were instrumental in the establishment of the clinic.

Cross Timbers will oversee daily operations of the clinic and Tarleton’s nursing program and its students will be involved in projects, research and training.
